Connecticut has introduced a ‘Highway Use Fee’ exclusively for heavy tractor trailers, aiming to generate revenue through mileage-based taxation since the state doesn’t have tolls. Drivers and companies are reminded to register their vehicles through signs at rest areas along state highways.

Legislators, primarily Democrats, enacted the tax over a year ago with the belief that it’s a beneficial policy, contributing to funding road and bridge maintenance caused by heavy trucks. Representative Ritter expressed support, emphasizing the financial assistance for infrastructure. However, trucking groups argue that it is discriminatory.
