Dual Honors For Legislative Achievement

September 20, 2016

In a General Assembly session dominated by a mounting budget deficit -- it took determination, focus and grit to get legislation passed. Rep. Luxenberg was successful in mustering bipartisan support for a bill against a discriminatory practice -- the sales tax on baby diapers and feminine hygiene products. Luxenberg passionately made her case that women were being taxed on gender-necessary products and that adult diapers are exempt from the sales tax so baby diapers should be exempt, too.

On September 15, 2016 in New Haven, Rep. Luxenberg was recognized for her achievements. The CT Early Childhood Alliance and The Diaper Bank both honored her with awards. Luxenberg received the Legislative Award from The Diaper Bank and Legislator of the Year Award from the CT Early Childhood Alliance.
