Constituents invited to take online survey
Regional - posted Apr, 01 2011
State Rep. Bryan Hurlburt, who represents Ashford, Tolland and Willington in the General Assembly, has set up an online survey on his legislative webpage at http://www.housedems.ct.gov/Hurlburt/index.asp and is encouraging constituents to offer their opinions on issues being worked on during the 2011 legislative session.
Survey questions mostly focus on the current state budget crisis. Participants are given choices as to what state spending they recommend being cut or protected and what taxes they think should be raised to help cover an estimated $3.5 billion budget deficit.
Questions range from cutting or maintaining funding for seniors and veterans’ services to aid to public schools and fixing roads and bridges. On the revenue side, respondents can consider changes on income and sales taxes and even if they favor allowing the sale of alcohol on Sundays.
