Connecticut Group Delivers ‘No Toll’ Petition To Governor
Back in March, we told you about a petition that was going around online for Connecticut residents who are not happy with the idea of potential highway tolls.

The group was hoping for one million signatures, however they had to settle for a little over 100,000, but the petition has been delivered and urges the General Assembly and Governor Lamont to vote "no" on any bill regarding tolls.
Here's a look at the scene in Hartford, as the petition was delivered:
According to wtnh.com, it's going to cost anywhere from $500 to $1000 per year to use the roads you travel on every day, and many people in the state want this legislation to go away.
