On Wednesday, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont publicly said “no” to the Transportation & Climate Initiative (TCI) gas tax, stating he would no longer pursue its implementation. After the state legislature refused to act on the controversial climate initiative last summer, the Governor’s rejection of this new fuel tax on motorists has effectively killed the TCI regional compact idea in the Nutmeg State, leaving Rhode Island and Massachusetts as the only 2 states among the original 14 states still considering this job-killing carbon tax scheme.
