Telfer Says Now is Not the Time for Big Tax Breaks


State Senator Chris Telfer says now is not the time to give big tax breaks when the State is cutting social programs and school districts are laying off teachers. Telfer sits on a committee that oversees tax breaks and says she is telling other members that tax breaks need to sunset unless the State deals with its budget shortfall:  "And I said I’m going to oppose all tax credits and allow them to sunset until people start telling me how many jobs its going to create and therefore how much income are we going to recognize from employed people paying into the general fund. And right now, I don't know if its a joke or what, but nobody is giving me that information. “ She says right now tax credits would to add another $45 million shortfall into the budget.
