Connecticut’s cities and towns hope to reclaim their share of state sales tax revenues when the 2014 General Assembly session convenes next week.
The Connecticut Conference of Municipalities today unveiled a legislative agenda that also includes:
Continued reforms of the Education Cost Sharing grant program; increase funding for early childhood education; expand incentives for multi-town collaboration to provide regional services; waive the required publishing of legal notices in newspapers, provided communities post them on their Internet sites; reform binding arbitration and prevailing wage laws, and, give cities and towns greater flexibility to defer property revaluations.
