HARTFORD, Conn. – Connecticut’s largest municipal lobby is hoping that property tax reform, education finance reform, and infrastructure investment are part of the legislative agenda this year.

In advance of the 2015 legislative session, the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities laid out its three-point strategy and asked again that cities and towns receive at least the same amount of money they received last year from the state.

During the first four years, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who was a mayor for 14 years before getting elected governor, maintained the same level of funding for municipalities. But with the state facing a $1.3 billion deficit in the next fiscal year it’s unclear what will happen.

Malloy is scheduled to deliver his budget to the legislature on Feb. 4.
