During the 8 years he has been in office Governor Malloy and the Democrat controlled legislature passed the 2 biggest tax increases in the history of Connecticut – but the state faces multi-billion-dollar deficits as far as the eye can see. Connecticut families cannot afford more tax increases. Len Suzio will continue to fight future tax increases. We need to balance the budget the old fashion way – cutting spending and not increasing taxes.

Senator Suzio has introduced a new double-deduction for Connecticut taxpayers for contributions they make to the Citizens-in-Need Fund. Any contributions also would be eligible for deduction for federal income tax purposes. The legislation passed the Finance Committee and the Senate but died in the House where it was not voted upon. Senator Suzio plans to bring this proposed tax deduction forward next year.
