What impact will the recent legislative session in Hartford mean to the residents of the Greater Danbury area?

The News-Times takes a look at some of the decisions to affect Greater Danbury the most, including increases in the state income tax and sales tax, the hospital tax, pulling back on state highway tolls, keeping vocational-technical schools under the state education umbrella, preserving the autonomy of the 2nd Co.
