Discover New England, the official tourism group for the New England states, has removed all mentions of Connecticut from its website. This includes literally removing the state from the New England map. The move comes in response to Connecticut eliminating tourism marketing from its budget, including the $100,000 fee paid by each state to Discover New England. You can read more in today's Boston Globe.
