What can you do?

July 14, 2017

Please read and share the Danbury News-Times story below.

The state legislature’s failure to do its job and pass a budget is negatively impacting vulnerable people like Andy Puglisi, who lives in a Southbury group home.

The Senate Republican budget solution – www.NewDirectionCT.com  – protects funding for services for at-risk residents like Andy.

And our line-by-line Senate Republican budget is ready to be voted on – now.

The state legislature is in Special Session.

The Democratic Speaker of the House and the Democratic Senate President Pro Tempore must sign an Emergency Certification in order for a bill to be debated and voted upon.

Without those signatures, Republicans are blocked from even having the argument about our budget solution.

What can you do?

  • Call your state legislators.  (House Democrats: 860 240-8500)  (Senate Democrats: 860 240-8600)
  • Urge them to tell legislative leaders to “Sign the Emergency Certification”
  • Urge them to “Allow a debate on the Senate Republican Budget.”
  • Tell them, “If you don’t have a solution, you should not deny CT Republicans the right to argue in favor of their solutions.”
  • Send me your comments at Eric.Berthel@cga.ct.gov.
