The train, which originated in Bridgeport, was 10 minutes late on arrival in Westport.

Short of its usual number of cars, the train quickly became crowded as it made stops to Stamford from where it ran express to New York.

Plan to Share Sales Tax With Towns Gets Hearing

By Jacqueline Rabe

www.ctmirror.org

Despite the fiscal crisis confronting the state, a legislative committee has decided to hold a public hearing on a bill that would share the state's sales tax with municipalities that participate in regional cooperation.

WestportNow.com Image

“The state right now does not give towns many options for revenue and this is something they have been asking for years for,” said Senate Majority Leader Martin M. Looney, the bill’s sponsor.

The New Haven Democrat’s proposal would allow those communities to keep one quarter of a percentage point of the 6 percent sales tax levied in the town. Currently the state’s $3.1 billion in annual sales tax revenue all goes to the General Fund

The Planning and Development Committee unanimously voted Wednesday to hear testimony on Looney’s proposal as early as March 1.

Report: State’s Unfunded Pension Liability 5th Worst in U.S.

Connecticut’s unfunded pension liability is fifth worst in the nation, a new study by the Pew Center on the States said today.

Less than 62 percent of the $41 billion Connecticut needs to pay retirees has been saved, the nonprofit research organization said.

“Connecticut’s management of its long-term pension liability is cause for serious concern,” the report said, and its funding of retireee health benefits also is lagging.

The report said of all of the bills coming due to states, “perhaps the most daunting is the cost of pensions, health care and other retirement benefits promised to their public sector employees.”

Connecticut Part of Project to Reinvent High School

By Robert A. Frahm

www.ctmirror.org

Just 16, and off to college?

WestportNow.com Image

That could become an option for high school sophomores in Connecticut, one of eight states named Wednesday to pilot test a rigorous new system, including board examinations, that would mark a dramatic shift in the traditional notion of high school education.

By fall of 2011, those states will begin testing a system of coursework and tests that has been widely used in other nations to bolster academic standards and prepare students for college, the National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE) announced.

The Board Examination system has been used in places such as Australia, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Scotland, Singapore, and parts of Canada and Germany but has been missing from U.S. schools, the NCEE said.
