Speaking Out for Seniors at State Capitol

February 15, 2017


Senior advocates from Fairfield on Feb. 7 joined Sen. Tony Hwang at the State Capitol to speak in favor of legislation to exempt Social Security payments from the Connecticut income tax.

“We are trying to eliminate the state tax on Social Security, and I really appreciate that area seniors are joining me in speaking out for this tax relief,” said Sen. Hwang, who serves as Vice Chair of the legislature’s Aging Committee.
