24 years ago, Connecticut lawmakers promised a cap on state government spending in return for the implementation of the state Income Tax.

Today, a panel is working to finally get the state spending cap implemented.

On Wednesday, Nov. 16, at 4 p.m., the panel will hold a public hearing at Naugatuck Valley Community College in Room S502 of the Cistulli Student Center. (Address: 750 Chase Pkwy, Waterbury)

This is your opportunity to weigh in on why we need a cap on out of control state government spending.

  • You can email your testimony to APPtestimony@cga.ct.gov .
  • Your testimony can be as brief as you like.
  • Put “Spending Cap” in the subject line of the email.
  • Feel free to copy me on the email at Henri.Martin@cga.ct.gov .
  • Share this information with CT taxpayers.

Let the Spending Cap Commission know about how Connecticut’s irresponsible spending has affected your lives and your families.

Senator Henri Martin
