Governor Dan Malloy has put forth a budget proposal with tax increases
close to $200 million in 2018. The new tax proposals could include: an
elimination of the property tax credit (bad for Middle-Class families),
the resurgent of the minimum bottle pricing (bad for small business),
property tax increases to hospitals, teacher pension funding gaps, and
many more absurd proposals. The S&P warned
that Malloy's plan to shift financial burdens onto municipalities could
be devistating - leaving municipal officials no choice but to raise
property taxes. Meanwhile, the Connecticut State University Sytems
warned they may be forced to declare exigency (bad for students). All of this after the Governor pledged there would be "no new taxes."

After years of warning, the Connecticut State Medical Examiner's Office lost its full accrediation.
This will leave all medical evidence collected in Connecticut open for
dispute - placing a larger burden on the Judicial Branch. The National
Association of Medical Examiners found four major deficiencies and 15
smaller deficiencies that must be corrected by September -- or
Connecticut will no longer have any accrediation from the national
organization. With cuts in funding and loss of accrediation a large
burden is being placed back on municipalities -- another unfunded
mandate stemming from the Malloy Administration.

tremendous victory. Senators praised her experience and unquestionable
record as a champion for small businesses and women alike. McMahon is
poised to bring prosperity to small business owners in the face of a
system previously run by partisan bureaucrats during the Obama
