The Connecticut General Assembly has adopted a new budget which includes an increased recording fee. This increased recording fee will become effective December 1, 2017. The new fee will be seven dollars more per document to record documents on the land records. At the time of publication, it is still unclear if the Governor will sign the bill. however, even if he were to veto it, the affirmative votes cast in both the House and Senate appear to make the bill veto-proof.
