That is a very progressive step, Deb. The wealthy towns in Suffolk County on Long Island have a county-wide 1/4% tax, which has produced huge amounts of money from very expensive real estate. NJ had a similar 1/4% a few years ago. CT, I fear, never will.


We Minnesotans have a constitutional amendment up for a vote that would dedicate 3/8ths percent sales tax to clean water, the environment, and the arts. We certainly haven't come about the necessary funding by the normal legislative process. I hope this thing passes, and by recent polls it looks like it has some strong support.
