Local lawmaker calls for sales tax elimination on PPE

Newtown State Representative JP Sredzinski is calling for the elimination of the 6.35% state sales tax on face masks and other personal protection products, like face shields and latex/rubber gloves.  He says Connecticut has one of the lowest COVID transmission rates in the country and residents should not be punished for purchasing and wearing the proper PPE.  In 2019, Sredzinski opposed the final two-year state budget, which included several new tax increases, including the repeal of the tax-exemption of safety apparel that subjected many pieces of safety gear to state sales tax.
