Lamont and Legislative Leaders Agree on Gas-Tax Holiday

Gov. Ned Lamont and legislative leaders agreed in principle on a sales-tax holiday, free CT Transit bus service for a month and a suspension of the state’s 25-cent-a-gallon retail tax on gasoline until June 30. If passed by the legislature, the state would forgo about $100 million in revenue, providing some relief to taxpayers and election-year talking points to politicians as inflation hits the highest point since the midterm elections of 1982.
