Concerned about CT’s runaway state spending?

October 25, 2016

In 1992, Connecticut voters overwhelmingly approved a cap on state government spending.

More than 80 percent of voters supported the cap.

Since 1992, state spending has skyrocketed.

In 1991-92, the state budget was $7.6 billion.

This year, it’s $19.76 billion.

The spending cap is toothless and unenforceable, and that must change.

A panel is now working to enact enforceable definitions of the cap.

Their work product can play a major role in restoring business confidence in Connecticut and in getting our fiscal house in order.

Please join me in urging the panel to restore stability and predictability to Connecticut government spending.

Here’s how:

  • Email the panel your comments at APPtestimony@cga.ct.gov
  • Your testimony can be as brief as you like.
  • Put “Spending Cap” in the subject line of the email.
  • Feel free to copy me on the email at Toni.Boucher@cga.ct.gov
  • Share this information with CT taxpayers.

Let’s put a mandatory brake on state spending!

Let’s get our costs under control!

This is a tremendous opportunity which we cannot afford to squander.

See my testimony here, and thank you in advance for raising your voices on this important issue.
