Municipal Leaders to Lobby Against Car Tax Cuts

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Municipal officials from across Connecticut are headed to the Capitol to propose changes to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s budget plan.

Mayors, first selectmen and town managers have scheduled a news conference and meetings with lawmakers on Wednesday.

Local officials are expected to ask the legislature’s Finance and Appropriations committees to “do no harm” to municipalities and highlight possible cuts in municipal aid that would result from Malloy’s proposed budget.

Municipal officials and others have criticized Malloy’s two-year $43.8 billion budget plan for proposing to exempt the first $20,000 of a vehicle’s assessed value from the local property tax. Town and city officials worry they’d have to raise property taxes to cover the lost revenue.
