  • Our Transportation Infrastructure: Are We There Yet?

    At the end of next month, the highway account of the federal Highway Trust Fund is expected to run out of money. Another fund for mass transit is scheduled to meet the same fate in October. Governor Dannel P. Malloy warned last week that protracted partisan paralysis in Congress could imperil more than 80 state highway, bridge, and rail projects, valued at $650 million, scheduled to start in the next fiscal year.

  • The Geniuses Do It Again

    To the Editor:

    Citizens beware; the geniuses in Hartford have done it again. What you ask? Raised the taxes on gas effective July 1st.

    The real kicker here is that when the tax was voted on by our “elected geniuses,” it was voted on for one reason and one reason only: repair of bridges and roads. Guess what?

    Again we get shafted; the new tax is going into the general fund! Shocked, I tell you,  shocked  that this could happen! (Apologies to Claude Raines, guess the movie.)
