Sen. Gordon Applauds New Law Establishing Property Tax Exemption for Veterans with Service-Connected Disabilities

HARTFORD – State Sen. Jeff Gordon (R-Woodstock), ranking member of the Veterans and Military Affairs Committee, today applauded Gov. Ned Lamont for signing legislation that exempts from property taxes the primary residence or motor vehicle of former members of the United States Armed Forces who have a permanent and total disability rating resulting from their active-duty service.

“As the ranking member of the Veterans and Military Affairs Committee, I am proud to have championed and supported this bill that Governor Lamont has now signed into law. This important legislation provides a property tax exemption for veterans with permanent, service-connected disabilities, honoring their immense sacrifices. Having met many such veterans, I am deeply grateful for their dedication and bravery, as are the residents of Connecticut. It is our duty to ensure that our veterans are well cared for when they return home, and this law marks a significant step in fulfilling that promise. During a public forum I co-hosted, the need for such support was clear from the feedback of veterans and veteran organizations,” he said.
