CT Assembly Reduces Cuts to Bike, Pedestrian, Smart Growth Bond Projects

May 5th, 2010 | By | Category: Smart Growth, Transportation

Earlier this year, Governor Rell proposed canceling plans to bond for $389 million worth of capital projects as a way to curb Connecticut’s deficit and maintain its bond rating. Unfortunately, the plan impacted a variety of projects that would have promoted more bikeable, walkable and smart growth oriented initiatives. This week, the Connecticut General Assembly took steps to reduce that damage.

The Assembly has amended the governor’s bill, passing a $422 million package of cuts that is larger than the governor’s but mutes the impact on bike and pedestrian projects.
