Sen. Kelly: “CT taxpayers deserve significant & immediate widespread tax relief”

February 7, 2023

This income tax cut was a central point of the governor’s State of the State address last month and one garnering legislative support from both sides of the aisle.

Senate Minority Leader Kevin Kelly (R-Stratford) released a statement reacting to the governor’s plan, saying that Senate Republicans “appreciate” Lamont’s proposal that would help “families who are feeling the pain at the pumps, at the supermarket and when they open their energy bills.

“Senate Republicans proposed $1.2 billion in tax relief last year, but our plan was rejected by majority Democrats in the legislature,” the statement continued. “Connecticut taxpayers deserve significant and immediate widespread tax relief, and Republicans will continue to fight for them.”
