Normally at odds on numerous policies, Connecticut Senate President Martin M. Looney, D-New Haven, and Senate President Republican Leader Len Fassano, R-North Haven, are on the same page, when it comes to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s proposal to eliminate the property tax credit taken by many residents, when they file their income tax forms.
“This would be a $105 million hit to families who have given back enough already to the state in recent years,” Fasano was quoted in the Saturday Republican-American newspaper.
Looney also told the paper eliminating the property tax credit would hurt middle class families.
The governor delivers his budget address on Feb. 8. He’s recommended the property tax credit of $200 be eliminated.
