Sen.George Logan On The Issues 
Affordability

Senator Logan, a family man with two children now in college, is extremely aware of how the cost of living in Connecticut impacts families in Connecticut. 

His record on working to make Connecticut affordable is clear:

  • Opposed the “grocery tax”

  • Voted against the following tax increases 

    • The digital download tax 

    • New Tax on Safety Apparel 

    • New Tax on Parking 

    • New 1% tax on soda, beverages, alcohol dispensed at bars’ soda fountains

    • Higher Fee in Vehicle Trade ins

    • New Tax on Dry Cleaning and Non-Coin-Operated Laundry Services

    • Increase filing fee for LLCs and LLPs 

    • $50 million annual tax increase on small businesses. 

 

 

As our state moves into a very difficult budget cycle in the shadow of the economic shutdown, recognizing the tight spot our hard working families are in has to be recognized and our budgeting has to be done in an honest and transparent way.

Senator’s Logan’s track record on taking an honest and straightforward approach to addressing our financial concerns:

  • Proposed an Alternative Transportation Plan that didn't Include Tolls

  • Provided a Paid Family Leave Bill without a Payroll Tax

  • Co/Sponsored, Introduced or Supported following cost-saving proposals 

    • Elimination of the Business Entity Tax 

    • Promotion and Development of Connecticut’s 72 opportunity zones

    • Offshore Wind Energy, which will create hundreds of jobs and work to make electricity in Connecticut more affordable. 

    • Elimination of the Estate and Gift Tax 

    • Exemption of Clothing and Footwear costing less than $75 from the sales and use tax

    • Allowing municipalities greater flexibility to determine property tax relief 

The future of our children and our state is grounded in our education system.  Sen. Logan’s view is the role of state government in education is to provide necessary funding for local schools, support teachers, and create a safe and quality education environment where all children can thrive. 

 

  • Senator Logan’s track record on education is clear: 

  • Supports continued local control of school systems 

  • Supports funding for technical education schools

  • Supports freezing the current state college tuition rates

  • Supports improvement of the system to fund special education services to protect local Board of Education budgets

Education
Healthcare

As a member of the Griffin Hospital Board of Directors, Senator Logan sees firsthand the importance of our local hospitals and the quality care our healthcare professionals provide.  Sen. Logan is a strong healthcare advocate and recognizes the importance of addressing both the long term impact healthcare costs have on our families and the obvious need to plan for future healthcare emergencies.

Sen. Logan’s efforts in drafting and pushing for impactful legislation in this area include:

  • Reducing the Cost of Insurance Premiums.

  • Reducing  Prescription Drug Costs.

  • Controlling the Growth of HealthCare Costs.

  • Developing a viable and comprehensive Health Emergency Preparedness Plan

  • Continuing to battle against opioid addiction

The United States has the best healthcare in the world due, in part, to the investment medical companies make in seeking new treatments and cures to improve our lives.  Government-controlled, socialized medicine system is not the answer.  Better use of the money we spend on our healthcare is.  For this reason, Sen. Logan is always supportive of spending on preventative medicine, which when done right, reduces human suffering and the drain on our healthcare system.
