HARTFORD, Conn. – Republican lawmakers outlined Tuesday a 30-year plan to spend more than $37 billion on transportation infrastructure improvements without raising taxes or installing highway tolls.

The plan, offered during a state Capitol press conference, lays out a plan by the legislature’s minority party for how to pay for expensive transportation overhauls that Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has made a focal point of this year’s legislative session.

Malloy, who is expected to outline his own plan next week as part of his two-year budget proposal, has not ruled out approving new revenue sources and Democrats in the legislature have proposed legislation to reinstate highway tolls.

    Without many more details the Republican plan isn’t worthy of real consideration. Better to do some serious homework before the press conference.
