SPEAK OUT! Debate over Local Zoning Control & New Property Taxes Continues

March 21, 2021

Defend Local Zoning Control, Protect the Environment & Open Space, Stop Overdevelopment, AND SAY NO to a New Statewide Property Tax

Last week CT Democrats cut off public input by closing down a public hearing on multiple bills that raise questions of open space preservation and overdevelopment, and local control, in effect turning away almost 70% of the people who had signed up to testify.

There is now another opportunity to share your thoughts on a similar bill. This bill ALSO INTRODUCES AN ADDITIONAL STATEWIDE PROPERTY TAX.


**This bill would levy an additional property tax on some homes located in municipalities which do not meet the current 10% requirement on Affordable Housing**

**This bill mirrors SB 172 that was heard by the Finance, Revenue and Bonding Comittee — so if you submitted testimony already, you can resubmit to P&D for SB 1068**
