Apr a proposal by democratic gubernatorial candidate Barbara Kennelly to Cut property tax Bills to percent across the Board is receiving mixed reviews from budget watchers As she Heads into a vital weekend for her Campaign. Kennelly an eight term congresswoman said thursday the state should shoulder a portion of every property tax Bill to help businesses and especially Middle income families living in highly taxed cities. Kennelly a plan would save the average family More than $600 Over its four year phase in and would Cost the state $480 million each year in reimbursements to towns.

A a it a time to begin reducing the property the democratic stale convention begins tonight and continues saturday when Kennelly is expected to be nominated. She is not opposed in her bid to unseat first term Republican gov. John g. Rowland whom she severely lags both in polls and fundraising. Kennelly called her proposal straightforward and simple. She said every local property tax Bill a on cars businesses and Homes would be Cut to percent when the plan was put fully into effect Over four years.

Under the plan a new London resident with a $100,000 Home and a $6,000 car would save about $280 each year. A new Haven resident with the same Home and car would save $392. Kennelly said the state could shoulder the Cost of the plan by relying on the growing Economy and finding ways to Cut government spending although the Union Friendly congresswoman said she does not want to privatize services or Cut stale jobs. Michael p. Meotti president of the nonpartisan Connecticut policy and economic Council said Kennelly has hit an important Issue for some areas of the state.
