Sen. George S. Logan on Feb. 7 applauded the Connecticut Senate and House Republicans’ plan to reinstate nearly $20 million in education funding that was cut midyear to cities and towns throughout the state.

The Republican proposal would allow the state to restore Education Cost Sharing funding that was cut by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s administration in December and also close the current budget deficit of $11.9 million as estimated by the Office of Fiscal Analysis.

“The December cuts to towns were unfair,” Sen. Logan said. “Local officials should be able to plan on what their state education funding should be. This is what I hear over and over again when talking to area mayors and first selectmen. My top priority is to protect Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Bethany, Derby, Hamden, Naugatuck and Woodbridge. Our Republican plan restores the cuts, and I will continue to fight to protect local education funding and property taxpayers.”
