Hartford—State Senator Joe Markley (R-Southington) today sent a letter to Capitol Region Development Authority (CRDA) Executive Director Michael Freimuth asking questions about CRDA’s reported interest in acquiring property around the XL Center in anticipation of the Center’s $250 million renovation.

Senator Markley has led the fight against additional borrowing to support the XL Center, having called it, “Throwing good money after bad.”

Governor Malloy has included borrowing $250 million to renovate the arena in his recent budget proposal.
