Children’s Committee renews effort to get rid of diaper tax

There are thousands of families in the state struggling to make ends meet, and exempting diapers from sales tax could provide a bit if much-needed relief, Janet Stolfi Alfano, executive director of The Diaper Bank, said.

The North Haven-based nonprofit works to increase access to and provide diapers to those who cannot otherwise afford them.
