Sen. Fasano: “Prioritize people over politics”

April 27, 2015

Hartford – Senate Minority Leader Len Fasano (R-North Haven) released the following statement regarding the Appropriations Committee budget proposal shared by committee chairs today.

“We appreciate the hard work of the Appropriations Committee in these very challenging times. I look forward to more discussions to find common ground. There is a great opportunity for all of us to sit down and work together on a plan to help the future of Connecticut. The core function of government is to protect the most vulnerable. The costs of fundamental programs should not be shouldered on the backs of those who can least afford it and those who already face many challenges. We need to work collaboratively to prioritize people over politics. We also need to look beyond today’s challenges and start making decisions that will benefit future generations.”
