2018 Commission on Fiscal Stability and Economic Growth

Final report from the 14-member Commission on Fiscal Stability and Economic Growth, which was created as part of the biennial budget for fiscal years 2018-19 (Conn. Acts 17-2 (June Special Session)).

The Commission, which was required to disband by March 1 according to the biennial budget, made the following 10 recommendations in its final report, which was unanimously adopted on March 1 and sent to the governor and the General Assembly. Read More

  1. Enact a revenue neutral rebalancing of state taxes (which becomes revenue positive when coupled with economic growth) that reduces income taxes in every bracket, selectively raises taxes on business, raises the sales tax rate by less than 1%, cuts exemptions and exclusions from all taxes by 14%, and eliminates the dwindling estate and gift taxes.
  2. Raise the gas tax to fund transportation projects and produce a plan for eventual implementation of electronic tolls.
  3. Create a Joint Budget Committee of the legislature with the power to set limits on revenues and expenses.
  4. Have the legislature assume the responsibility to define state employee fringe benefits by removing them from collective bargaining for new contracts.
  5. Amend binding arbitration laws to permit award of compromise outcomes.
  6. Develop and implement a plan to cut $1 billion out of annual operating expenses.
  7. Reform the Teachers' Retirement System to lower costs and to make it sustainable by paying down unfunded liabilities.
  8. Reinvest in transportation and cities, and build a major new STEM campus in one city in partnership with a major research university.
  9. Undertake a series of growth initiatives, led by the executive branch, with the funding and support from the legislature to (1) develop and retain the workforce Connecticut needs, (2) support the growth of Connecticut's highest-potential economic sectors and (3) transform the business environment for entrepreneurship and innovation.
  10. Diversify municipal revenue streams beyond the regressive property tax and stimulate regional service delivery.

The Northeast Corridor and the American Economy Report Published - February 2015

Northeast Corridor Commission’s report to Congress, The Northeast Corridor and the American Economy.

I am pleased to announce the publication of the Northeast Corridor Commission’s report to Congress, The Northeast Corridor and the American Economy. We owe a special debt of gratitude to the business and civic leaders that organized and participated in focus groups and individual interviews up and down the Corridor. Your stories provided some of the most compelling material in the final report, from how large and small firms use the NEC to access talented workers and capital, to how major manufacturers in the Midwest use the NEC to access global markets via east coast ports.

The study combined your stories with quantitative analysis. Some highlights:

·         The NEC plays a key role in sustaining the NEC Region’s $3 trillion economy, the fifth largest in the world just ahead of France.

·         An unexpected loss of the NEC, even for a single day, would cost up to $100 million per day as a result of higher congestion on roadways and lost productivity.

·         The NEC moves a workforce that contributes $50 billion annually to the American economy.

·         Seven million jobs are located within five miles of a NEC rail station, almost a third of all jobs in the NEC Region.

We hope you are able to follow the link above to download the report and learn more. Please feel free to forward this information to other colleagues, business groups, and civic organizations. Finally, we would like this report to be the beginning, not the end, of an ongoing partnership. We are planning on hosting several events this summer and fall to present and discuss the findings of the report. We will keep you posted on that. In addition, there is an area on our website at the link above where businesses and communities can submit their stories for future efforts to illustrate the important relationship between the Northeast Corridor rail network and a thriving national economy.
