CT essential worker bonuses to be cut for all but lowest-income

More than half of essential workers who qualified for state-funded coronavirus pandemic bonuses will receive discounted payments under modifications the General Assembly adopted Monday.

The Senate voted 33-0 shortly after 9 p.m. to approve the revised bonus schedule as part of an omnibus measure that also extended the state’s gasoline tax holiday and bolstered winter heating assistance. The House had passed the measure 134-7 late Monday afternoon.
