Fasano, Klarides Statement on Governor’s Proposals

October 28, 2015

Hartford –Senate Minority Leader Len Fasano (R-North Haven) and House Republican Leader (R-Derby) released the following statement regarding Governor Dannel P. Malloy’s budget proposals released today.

“We are appreciative of the ideas put forward by the governor to help advance the conversation on long term structural changes. We look forward to exploring these ideas further in our bipartisan meetings and working together to put the state on a better path to fiscal sustainability. We are currently engaged in budget negotiations with the Democrats to determine the actual deficit in the short term that will help guide our decisions. Clearly, staying on the path Connecticut is currently on would be devastating. It’s refreshing to see the governor acknowledge there’s need for a new approach.”
