February 8, 2017

HARTFORD, Conn. – Today, Senator Kevin Kelly (R-Stratford) released the following statement regarding Governor Malloy’s proposed 2018-2019 biennial state budget.

“Once again Governor Malloy is looking to balance his budget off from backs of the hard-working middle-class families of Connecticut which now includes the backs of our children, with a $572 million bill on our children’s credit card as a result of his pension deal ,” said Sen. Kelly. “The budget relies on $700 million in unrealistic labor savings and includes $632 million in tax increases for the middle-class, most notably the elimination of our property tax credit – which will impact more than 874,000 families.”

Senator Kevin Kelly represents the 21st Senatorial District which includes the towns of Monroe, Seymour, Shelton and Stratford. Sen. Kelly currently serves as the Co-Chair of both the Aging Committee and the Insurance and Real Estate Committee.
