Sen. Kelly statement on Dems’ child tax credit proposal

January 19, 2021


For Immediate Release:

Senate Republican Leader Kevin Kelly (R-Stratford) today issued the following statement regarding the new child tax credit proposed by majority Democrats on the legislature’s Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee:

“We appreciate the admission by Democrats that Connecticut is an expensive place to live and raise a family. It’s about time! That’s why Republicans have been fighting for ways to make Connecticut more affordable for middle class families who have been squeezed by majority Democrats and one party rule for at least a decade.

“And while we welcome this discussion, as is always the case, the devil is in the details. Health insurance premiums, energy costs and the overall cost of living in Connecticut are too high thanks to the onerous policies passed by majority Democrats, resulting in people leaving Connecticut for greener pastures. Over the course of the next few weeks, Republicans will unveil proposals of our own to make Connecticut more affordable and we look forward to a spirited debate.”
