 Sen. Suzio Seeks to De-Fund State Study
Urges Public To Weigh In

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.

Those who wish to testify in favor of Suzio's bill de-funding the Mileage Tax study can do so by:

1) sending an email to TraTestimony@cga.ct.gov (the comment can be as brief as you like)

2)  put Bill # 76 in the email's Subject Line
3)  if you wish, copy Suzio on the email at Len.Suzio@cga.ct.gov
