Sen. Suzio Seeks to De-Fund State Study, Urges Public To Weigh In
A CT Mileage Tax?
A proposal by Sen. Len Suzio to
de-fund the state's study of a potential "Mileage Tax" will receive a
public hearing in the coming weeks.
Suzio on Monday applauded the Transportation Committee's vote to let the public weigh in on the issue.
Suzio, who serves as Vice-Chair of the committee, said he is making good on his campaign pledge to defeat the Mileage Tax.
"Imagine a Connecticut tax that
would put a GPS chip in your vehicle and track your every move," Suzio
said. "Imagine getting taxed for every mile you drive. Why are our
state tax dollars being used to study this 'Big Brother' idea? Let's do
the right thing and de-fund the study. I urge taxpayers to speak out
against the Mileage Tax."
Suzio has proposed using the
Mileage Tax study funds to replenish the cuts Gov. Malloy made to the
Connecticut Honor Guard. The Honor Guard attends the funerals of
Connecticut veterans, playing "Taps" and conducting rifle salutes.
