There's a call for an investigation into how the state Department of Revenue Services came up with their initial interpretation of the prepared meals surcharge. Wilton Senator Will Haskell has asked the Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee to find out from DRS how and why its interpretation of the budget changed from what was agreed upon during budget negotiations. He called their first position incorrect. There are a handful of items for sale in some grocery stores, which could also be purchased at a restaurant or a fast-food establishment, that are currently subject to the 6.35% sales tax. Haskell called it a matter of fairness for small business owners who own local restaurants and employ local residents.
