Plastic Bag Tax Returns July 1

The state’s Department of Revenue Services (DRS) announced that collection of the plastic bag tax resumes today, and that retailers should begin collecting the 10-cent per bag tax again. The governor in late-March suspended the tax during the pandemic response.

Full School Reopening Plan

Last week, I sent an email with the state’s outline for K-12 school reopenings in the fall. Earlier this week, the Connecticut State Dept. of Education (CSDE) released a full roadmap for reopening schools that will allow all school districts in the state to deliver full-time, in-person classes. The plan also includes COVID-19 mitigation, containment, and monitoring strategies for districts to implement, as well as contingency plans for class cancellation should Connecticut see a rise in COVID-19 cases.
