Caligiuri on tax reform

Reported by the New Britain Herald:

One reason it may have received so little media coverage was that the study called for the elimination of the state income tax...

State Sen. Sam Caligiuri, R-16th District, believes our state income tax has made it easier than ever for the legislature to spend more than the state can afford.

“Its imposition has enabled a vicious cycle of excessive spending and tax hikes that stifles economic growth,” he says.
