The Governor's Budget would reduce the Earned Income Tax Credit, remove parents from HUSKY A, eliminate property tax support for the lower and middle classes, keep young children out of Care 4 Kids funded child care, and cut municipal aid to 141 towns. Statewide, proposed cuts to the EITC and the property tax credit are equal to a tax increase of $93 for low-income families and $157 for middle-income families.
We have created four new advocacy tools with up-to-date information on these budget impacts:
A one-page document explaining how many of the Governor's cost-savings proposals target the same groups of low- to middle-income families.
An interactive map showing the town-by-town impact of these proposed cuts.
Individual fact sheets for each House and Senate district so you can use the information in your conversations n with your legislators. You can download the fact sheets here.
To stop these proposals from becoming reality, we need to work together. Please call your legislators and ask them to reject a cuts-only approach and to commit to a balanced approach that includes new revenue. Click here to take action.
