The Connecticut governor has signed into law the state budget for 2017-2019. Buried in section 665 of the 900-page budget bill (June Special Session, Public Act No. 17-2) is a $7 increase for recording many documents on the Land Records. The increased recording fees took effect on December 1, 2017.
