Local lawmaker backs suspension of gross receipts tax [WLAD]

March 14, 2022

From the WLAD Newsroom:


Connecticut Republican lawmakers this week proposed a temporary suspension of the gross receipts tax on gasoline. New Milford Senator Craig Miner says families are frustrated and at a breaking point from historically high prices at the pump. He says cars are the only means to access jobs in Litchfield County as mass transit is largely not an option. He called it irresponsible to withhold relief from families who’ve paid dearly and are the reason why the state’s budget is flush with reserves.
