Report on state released – The Connecticut Post Online: “HARTFORD — Annual increases in state aid have not kept up with the rising cost of running local schools and governments, according to a study released Monday by the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities.

‘Shackled to an 18th century property tax system that is insensitive to income, and an incoherent and fractious land use system that fosters intermunicipal competition and sprawl development, towns and cities face a host of challenges,’ said the 21-page annual report. The study said that the state’s Education Cost Sharing system has not kept up with the rising cost of running public schools.”
