Fasano Statement on OPM Monthly Letter to Comptroller

January 21, 2017

Hartford – Senate Republican President Pro Tempore Len Fasano (R-North Haven) released the following statement regarding the Office of Policy & Management’s monthly budget forecast.

“While I’m thankful that projections from the governor’s office are not currently showing a deficit for this fiscal year, we have to recognize that the reason for this change is not that our economy is growing. This is a result of $172 million in one-time revenue. This should underscore the fact that we have to be exceptionally cautious when it comes to creating a sustainable budget as we prepare to tackle even greater challenges in the next fiscal year.”
