Readers curious about taxes, union membership, slot revenue
Readers seem to have government on their minds, so we've culled these four questions for you to consider in our next round of CuriousCT voting:
- How much potential tax revenue to date would have been collected by the city of New London on all the Fort Trumbull properties combined that were taken and destroyed from the eminent domain debacle?
- After the Supreme Court sided with a union worker who didn’t want to pay mandatory yearly dues, how many state of Connecticut rank and file workers elected not to pay the required dues?
- How much money does it cost taxpayers when the General Assembly meets in a special session?
- Since it began receiving slot machine revenue, how has the state spent those funds? I would love to see a thorough cost accounting of how that money has been used.
