The Republicans' two-year budget is unbalanced, relies on unrealistic savings, and contains devastating cuts to higher education. Their spending package would also inflict turmoil by slashing the vital services and programs that our most vulnerable residents rely on. I strongly opposed their spending proposal and voted "No" because I believe this budget is bad for our state and contradicts Connecticut's core values.
Victims of Harvey need our help! Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced that the State has deployed a C-130H cargo plane and eight Airmen from the 103rd Airlift Wing of the Connecticut National Guard to help with Hurricane Harvey response and recovery efforts in Texas.
I was pleased to join my colleague, State Rep.Liz Linehan for a town hall discussion on the state budget Wednesday.
This was a great opportunity for our local residents to ask questions about the budget proposals in front of the legislature and provide their input prior to our vote when we meet for special session.
Thank you to all who attended the forum at Wallingford’s Public Library.
