Posted on September 18, 2019 by admin


HARTFORD – Today, House and Senate Republicans called upon Governor Ned Lamont to bring the legislature into special session to fix a piece of legislation passed in the Democrat state budget that created new taxes on hundreds of grocery store foods, and also substantially increased taxes on prepared meals.

“We are with the growing number of Connecticut residents who have called, commented on Facebook, or emailed about their disapproval with this grocery tax,” said Rep. McGorty. “The majority party should listen to the people and get back to Hartford to fix this huge tax increase.”

HARTFORD – Reps. Perillo and McGorty issued the following statements in regards to newly released details on the “meals tax” included in the Democrat state budget set to go into effect October 1, 2019.

“This is a major tax hike that will hurt every Connecticut taxpayer,” said Rep. Perillo. “We all have to buy these products on a weekly or daily basis and no matter if it is 1% or 10% more it adds up.”

Rep. McGorty added, “This is the start of taxing every single thing you buy at the grocery store,” said Rep. McGorty. “The majority party and the governor tried to pull a quick one on the residents of Connecticut and it didn’t work.”
