Sen. Kelly Responds to Gov. Lamont’s Tax Proposals

February 2, 2022

HARTFORD – Senate Republican Leader Kevin Kelly (R-Stratford) released the following statement in response to the tax proposals shared by Governor Ned Lamont today:


“It must be an election year since Democrats are talking about tax cuts. Unfortunately, there is no actual relief here until next year! Connecticut absolutely must look to reduce taxes on residents and make our state more affordable for middle class families. Republicans have long called for relief when it comes to property taxes and taxes on pension in particular. But we also need immediate relief. Inflation right now is crushing family budgets. We must reduce the sales tax now. Promises for future tax credits are welcome, so long as they can be delivered. But we cannot ignore that what families are calling for is real relief now.”
