Making Connecticut Affordable, Call for Special Session

Posted on June 7, 2022


Inflation and our state’s tax structure have made Connecticut unaffordable. I am calling for a special session to provide immediate tax relief that will be meaningful to both residents and businesses. The plan I support prioritizes lowering energy costs – including diesel fuel – as well as making everyday items easier for you to purchase. Specifics of the plan include:

  • Reducing the income tax
  • Expanding current gas tax holiday to diesel
  • Suspending impending diesel fuel tax increase (scheduled for July 1)
  • Eliminating the big truck tax
  • Reducing the state’s sales tax
  • Eliminating the tax on meals
  • Increasing residential heating and cooling assistance accessibility
