Fasano, Witkos: Disastrous Budget Only Overshadowed by Even Worse Process

June 3, 2015

HartfordSenate Minority Leader Len Fasano (R-North Haven) & Senate Minority Leader Pro Tempore Kevin Witkos (R-Canton) released the following statement following the House of Representatives’ passage of the state budget negotiated between Democrat lawmakers and Governor Dannel P. Malloy.

“The draconian method that the Democrats used to force this budget bill, universally agreed to be a bad budget, through the legislature is completely unacceptable. This disastrous budget is only overshadowed by an even worse process. The budget began with special interest deals behind closed doors. It is now ending with a vote negotiated behind closed doors, in the hallway and on the floor – shaped by deals made in exchange for votes. The budget, the implementer and future bonding agendas will disclose the real truth.”
