NORWALK - The imposition of new taxes on products and services that have never been taxed before in Gov. Dannel Malloy's (D-Conn.) new budget plan is causing some controversy among lawmakers and constituents.
Many residents say they are concerned as to how these changes will affect their own budgets.
The governor's proposal would end the tax exemption on clothing and shoe purchases under $50, causing some shoppers to question if they'll continue to buy locally or head out of state for better deals.
Other exemptions the governor wants to end include services such as pet grooming, cosmetic surgery and boat storage. However, he says he does plan to keep food and prescription medications tax-free.
The governor is expected to unveil his new budget plan tomorrow.
