We recently called for better funding of the state’s Payment In Lieu of Taxes program (PILOT) as a method of alleviating Connecticut’s worst-in-the-country property tax burden (see our August and October 2019 editorials). Therefore, it seems only proper for us to congratulate the General Assembly and Gov. Ned Lamont on their successful passage in March of the first major PILOT reform in decades.
