Some CT lawmakers still want to push for ban on gasoline zone pricing
Despite being voted down by a committee, some Connecticut lawmakers say they are going to keep pushing for a ban on zone pricing for gasoline.
The deadline for committees to pass pending bills to the General Assembly was Tuesday and the General Law Committee voted against the zone pricing ban. State Senator Thomas Colapietro (D-Bristol), who is chairman of that committee, says he disagrees with the committee. Colapietro says, ?[The zone pricing ban] should be out for a debate.?
Lawmakers say the proposed zone pricing ban has the support of the attorney general and the governor. Colapietro says he will now look for another bill to amend. He hopes a proposal will be brought to the General Assembly soon.
