Lamont says lawmakers will be back for tolls

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Gov. Ned Lamont is closing out the regular legislative session, praising Connecticut lawmakers for their hard work, including passing a new two-year, $43 billion budget.

The Democrat said early Thursday morning that ``fiscal stability is key to economic growth'' and the budget, which received final legislative passage on Tuesday, ``gets us going in the right direction.''

Lamont reminded lawmakers their work is not done, however.

He plans to call the General Assembly back for a special session on transportation funding, namely approval of electronic tolls. Despite spending much of the session trying to reach a deal, the House and Senate didn't vote on a tolling bill.

Lawmakers also plan to meet again to finish some bonding bills and possibly approve a settlement Lamont reached with hospitals over a contested tax.
