A Connecticut state senator has filed an injunction in state superior court to stop bonded funds from being used for a $10 million toll study.

Republican State Senator Joe Markley of Southington, who filed the motion Tuesday, said Democratic Governor Dannel Malloy does not have the authority to borrow $10 million to conduct a study that the legislature did not approve.

Malloy signed an executive order in July directing state agencies to study the possibility of bringing back tolls to the state’s highways.
