HARTFORD - State lawmakers are discussing Gov. Dannel Malloy's proposal to give people a small tax break.

They held a public meeting on the issue yesterday.

Malloy has proposed using part of the state surplus to give many tax payers a $55 gas and sales tax rebate.

Malloy's budget chief says most people will likely spend the money, which will help the economy and create jobs.

An estimated 3 million people would be eligible for rebates.

If approved, the rebates would go out in September.
