Dear Neighbors,

In a recent poll I sent out to constituents, over 80% who responded were opposed to the DOT study proposal which called for 82 tolls. The proposed installation of tolls on Connecticut highways would have a major impact on our community.

Join me for an informational forum on the plans put forward by Governor Lamont and other proposals before the legislature.

Dear Neighbors,

This Friday, the Finance, Revenue, and Bonding Committee of the General Assembly will be holding a public hearing on Governor Lamont’s proposed revenue budget and the Senate Democrat Leader’s proposal to institute a statewide property tax and a statewide car tax.

As you may have heard, Governor Lamont’s proposed budget expands many taxes, including the sales tax to cover many previously exempted items; such as non-prescription drugs, digital downloads like Netflix, children’s car seats and bicycle helmets, dry cleaning, barber shops, beauty salons, veterinary services, parking, newspapers and a wide range of professional services including legal, accounting, interior design, real estate, and sports and recreation instruction. All totaled the tax expansions will cost Connecticut families about $300 million more in the 2020 fiscal year and about $500 million more in the 2021 fiscal year. His proposal would also place a 10 cent surcharge on plastic bags and a 1.5 cent tax per ounce on sugar-sweetened beverages, like soda, juice, and sports drinks, among many other new or expanded taxes.
