Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy is proposing more than $1.5 billion in tax hikes, including some unusual changes to the state sales tax.

For instance, Malloy wants to charge a 3% tax on, well ... fun. The "cabaret tax" would apply to any businesses offering entertainment or dancing, while also selling alcohol.

Connecticut previously charged a 5% cabaret tax, in addition to sales and alcohol taxes, but lawmakers repealed that law in 1999.
