(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont released the following statement regarding the transportation proposal announced today by the House Democratic caucus:

“I am appreciative of House Democrats’ thoughtful contribution to the discussion about Connecticut’s economic future and the critical need for investment in our transportation system. A guiding principle of CT2030 is a dedicated revenue stream, which in large part comes from out-of-state drivers. This proposal adheres to that basic principle, albeit to a lesser extent, but is a concept that I have explored and one that should be considered among the other plans.

Given this addition to the conversation, the plan from Senate Republicans presented last week, and a reported plan forthcoming from House Republicans, I am recommending that all caucuses be prepared to bring these proposals to a meeting in my office as soon as possible. Connecticut’s economic success is vital to our state’s future and this discussion should be had with all caucuses dedicated to creating a solution.”



Thank you for taking the time to look at how I want to improve your quality of life and the state of Connecticut through transportation upgrades over the next ten years. CT2030 is what Connecticut families and employers deserve. As a small business owner, I always believed that collaboration would lead to unique solutions to complex problems, and CT2030 delivers on that.

No company should be less productive as a result of traffic jams or slow trains and buses. No parent should be late to pick their child up from school because of a traffic signal in the middle of a busy highway, or a preventable delay at a bridge or exit. I want to give Connecticut families, employers, and workers their time back and I believe CT2030 is the responsible way to provide a better future.

Our state has the opportunity today to make the investments and decisions that will pay off for our children tomorrow.

Thank you,

Governor Ned Lamont
