“In my opinion, it is more important than ever for everyone to understand the choices facing Connecticut as the General Assembly puts together a state budget for the next two years. Our challenge is to pass a responsible state budget that funds necessary government programs and services at a cost the taxpayers can afford. An important part of that task involves erasing the budget deficit. I urge everyone with internet access to learn more about the state budget process by checking out our new website,” said Senator Kane.

Viewers can directly access the website at, or through a link on Senator Kane’s web page on the Senate Republican Caucus website at Features of the new CTBudgetFacts website include a welcome video by Senator Kane, an interactive budget presentation, a description of the various budget issues facing Connecticut now and in the future, and an explanation of the various budget proposals under consideration.

“The regular legislative session ends on June 3rd, and our new fiscal year begins on July 1st. Connecticut residents rightfully expect legislators to work together, and with Governor Rell, to pass a responsible budget. As always, I urge everyone to share their thoughts and concerns with me.
