Fasano Statement Regarding Gov. Malloy’s Press Conference Today

October 20, 2017

Hartford – Senate Republican President Pro Tempore Len Fasano (R-North Haven) released the following statement in response to a press conference held by Governor Dannel P. Malloy today.

“This is Governor Malloy’s third press conference in a row where he has absolutely nothing helpful to say. This is an irrelevant leader trying to make himself relevant. Instead of being open to a truly bipartisan budget that leaders have worked on day after day together as equals, he continues to make himself an impediment. Governor Malloy has already said that if the state doesn’t adopt a budget, businesses will leave, employers won’t come here, and job losses will grow even more than they already have. If that’s true the governor should be as supportive as possible of lawmakers’ efforts to pass this budget. Instead he appears comfortable sitting on the sidelines lobbing insults and getting nothing done.”
