Sen. Fasano Reacts to Democrats’ Comments on GOP Budget

April 24, 2015

Hartford – Senate Minority Leader Len Fasano (R-North Haven) released the following statement in response to Democrats’ comments on the Republican Blueprint for Prosperity:

“I appreciate Senator Bye and Speaker Sharkey’s openness to working together on a bipartisan budget. Now is the time to start a conversation and compromise together. The governor’s office, who failed to provide a budget that was in balance or under the spending cap, was quick to seek conflict over collaboration and brush our ideas aside, calling them ‘unrealistic.’ It is encouraging to know that Democrat legislators think differently and are open to a new dialogue and to bringing real change to Hartford. We look forward to the process of crafting a budget together that reflects the true needs and priorities of Connecticut. I applaud Democratic legislative leaders for being leaders, and for being open to a new future for our state.”
