HARTFORD – State Representative Stephen Harding (R-107) continues to object to the substantial amount of new and expanded taxes being placed on grocery store foods and prepared meals, set to be implemented on October 1st when the State budget, which Rep. Harding voted against, takes effect.
“I am committed to continuing to fight against policies which make Connecticut more and more unaffordable for my constituents,” said Rep. Harding. “Instead of heeding proposals by me and many of my colleagues, along with public pleas for a change in the underlying, long-term structure of spending and financial management in our state, majority leadership in the legislature has again shifted their problems onto the backs of hard-working citizens and businesses. This is unacceptable.”
