Sen Markley on Tolls in CT

Footnote:  “People who support tolls almost always cite the out-of-staters we could make pay. As I said in the video, according to the DOT the maximum out of state traffic on our limited access highways is 25% (they estimate it at 20 to 25%). I happened to read an analysis by DRS which says that 24.1% of the sales tax is paid by people and businesses from out of state–as is 22.7% of the property tax, 21.7% of the excise tax, 28.5% of the gross earnings tax… In other words, tolls don’t bring in out of state income at a higher rate than most other taxes. The difference is, when you stand in line at Macy’s, the person ahead of you doesn’t have a tag on his back telling you where he’s from.”

Conclusion: Tolls are not a solution to what is wrong with CT

Sen. Logan: GOP plan restores Gov. Malloy’s December Cuts to Local Education $$$

Sen. George S. Logan on Feb. 7 applauded the Connecticut Senate and House Republicans’ plan to reinstate nearly $20 million in education funding that was cut midyear to cities and towns throughout the state.

The Republican proposal would allow the state to restore Education Cost Sharing funding that was cut by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s administration in December and also close the current budget deficit of $11.9 million as estimated by the Office of Fiscal Analysis.

“The December cuts to towns were unfair,” Sen. Logan said. “Local officials should be able to plan on what their state education funding should be. This is what I hear over and over again when talking to area mayors and first selectmen. My top priority is to protect Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Bethany, Derby, Hamden, Naugatuck and Woodbridge. Our Republican plan restores the cuts, and I will continue to fight to protect local education funding and property taxpayers.”

The plan can be viewed at   http://www.ctsenaterepublicans.com.
