Romano: Too many 9-1-1 calls?

February 15, 2013 J

Rep. Butler is Right on 9-1-1

Last week I testified on a bill that would prevent a tax from being placed upon communities who call 911 “too many times.”

As is always the case with a tax, the people who can least afford to pay, pay the most. In this instance, individuals and families who reside in poorer neighborhoods stand to be punished through this tax for calling 911 or having 911 called too often in their community. This is simply not right and could lead to a decrease in public safety all for the sake of a little more revenue.

I am proud to be joining the fight against this senseless legislation with State Rep. Larry Butler. Representative Butler gets that public safety should not pay the price for a small increase in revenue. I encourage you to contact Representative Butler and thank him for his commitment and common sense on this legislation.

You can contact Rep. Butler by email at Larry.Butler@cga.ct.gov or call 860-240-8585! I hope you’ll send him some love this Valentine’s Day!
