HARTFORD – State Rep. David T. Wilson (R-Litchfield) listened to the governor’s first budget proposal. Governor Lamont presented his plan to manage the state’s finances over the next two years to the state legislature, with the plan mainly utilizing revenue increases to close projected deficits.
“This document will place additional taxes on middle class families and have long-term unintended consequences,” Rep. Wilson explained. “I was baffled when the governor said that in order for us as a state to keep up with modernization, we need to expand what is eligible to be taxed. At the same time, the governor expressed the need for us to become more business friendly, making Connecticut more attractive to younger folks. If budgetary policies raise the cost of living it is counterintuitive to making our state a better place to live.”
According to Rep. Wilson, under Governor Lamont’s budget there will be a myriad of new taxes including, but not limited to, haircuts, industry services, and tolls.
