Exempting your Social Security from the state income tax! The General Assembly’s Select Committee on Aging, which I'm on, approved House Bill 6987, "An Act Exempting Social Security Benefits from State Income Tax".

The Connecticut Coalition Against Crumbling Basements had an information booth set up in the State Capitol complex today. We have a number of bills before the legislature on failing foundations due to the mineral pyrrhotite in the concrete aggregate. I had an informative discussion and am interested in hearing all ideas on this multi-billion dollar crisis.
