HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s new budget proposal reinstates the sales tax exemption on clothing.

The two-year, $43.8 billion plan, released on Wednesday, would reapply the exemption on July 1, 2014. It would apply to articles of clothing and footwear costing less than $25.

The reinstated $25 exemption will cost $55.5 million.

Starting July 1, 2015, the exemption would apply to clothing and footwear costing less than $50. The $50 exemption will cost $143.3 million.
