I made another appearance on the Courant’s “Capitol Watch” Podcast, where Dan Brechlin and I talked about the status of budget negotiations, how a deal got done for a third casino in the state and what is happening with a union concession deal.
Speaker Calls Out Minority Republican Attempt To Block Transportation Funding "Lockbox" On TechnicalityJune 6, 2017
Speaker Aresimowicz said the House Republicans’ attempt to stop passage of a constitutional “Lockbox” for state transportation funding on a technical maneuver is “shameful, and once again exposes the minority party’s session-long mantra of putting politics ahead of the interests of taxpayers.”
Speaker of the House Joe Aresimowicz called House Minority Leader Themis Klarides’ statement that gaining seats in the legislature is always the goal “an obscene political statement” that tells Connecticut residents that the needs of the state come second to politics in the eyes of the House Republican minority party.
I spoke with Dan Brechlin on the Courant’s “Capitol Watch” Podcast, where we talked about the prospects of another casino, the likelihood of tolls and how I’m working to increase transparency at the Capitol.
