Lamont Pours Cold Water On Mansion Tax

Gov. Ned Lamont has said he doesn’t support a push by Senate President Pro Tem Martin Looney to raise taxes on high-end homes. Looney has proposed what he’s calling a mansion tax to increase property tax on homes worth over $430,000; the money could go to supporting struggling cities. But Lamont told the Connecticut Business and Industry Association Tuesday that he won’t back new taxes and he doesn’t think the bill is going anywhere.
