Conn. realtors set to meet with lawmakers

Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, CT (AP) -

Hundreds of realtors from around Connecticut are expected to come to Hartford to meet with state lawmakers.

The Connecticut Association of Realtors opposes increases in the real estate conveyance tax and advocates for reform of the state's foreclosure regulations.

The professional trade association has expressed displeasure with Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's proposal to increase the municipal portion of the real estate conveyance tax to help cover the state's budget deficit.

Legislators scheduled to meet Wednesday with the realtors include Democratic Sens. Paul Doyle, Bob Duff, Joan Hartley and Andrew Maynard; Republican Reps. Fred Camillo, Pamela Sawyer and John Frey; and Democratic Rep. Roberta Willis.
