State officials visited Milford Tuesday to tout the brand-new state budget.
Lt. Gov. Susan Bysiewwicz joined new Milford Mayor Richard Smith and local officials at Milford City Hall to discuss what the new state budget means for them.
Highlights, officials say, include statewide funding for child care, education, health care and gun violence prevention.
The Milford Boys and Girls Club will also get $50,000 for workforce development.
The mayor also noted tax breaks for residents.
"The tax cut that was passed by the state legislature will improve the lives of many people here in Milford, especially the folks in the middle and working class who are going to see significant reductions in their state income tax,” says Smith.
Lawmakers have said the budget contains the largest tax cut since the inception of the state’s income tax over 30 years ago.
