The Department of Motor Vehicles says that about 50,000 incorrect car tax bills will be mailed to drivers in Connecticut due to a computer error.

Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy’s proposed $55-per-person tax rebate won the approval of a key state legislative committee on Tuesday. Members of the Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee voted 31 to 19 for the proposal.

The Speaker of the Connecticut House of Representatives said on Wednesday he’s in favor of allowing municipalities to tax college and hospital properties. Such institutions are currently exempt from local property taxes because they are non-profits.
