House adopts one of the largest tax cuts in CT history

The House of Representatives approved a $24.2 billion state budget early Tuesday morning that provides more than $600 million in income tax cuts, a car tax freeze, an extended gasoline tax holiday and other relief.

The Democrat-controlled chamber voted 95-52 along party lines shortly after 12:20 a.m. to approve the budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1. The Senate, where Democrats also hold the majority, was expected to approve the plan later Tuesday.
