Said Godfrey of Danbury, who was initially elected to the state House in 1988, "The inability to solve unsolvable problems is a theme that I'm hearing a lot" from voters. "There is no state tax on gasoline." "I would like to see a more progressive income tax, and that's how I would pay for a cut in the sales tax," Godfrey commented. On another topic, Godfrey expressed dismay over "structural financial deficit" in which 99 percent of the reserves had been depleted at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury. The result was approval of an increase in the annual salaries for state House and Senate members from $28,000 to $40,000.
