Lamont Administration Approves Double-Digit Rate Hikes… Yet Lamont Calls Rate Hikes “Outrageous”?

September 2, 2022
Sens. Kelly and Hwang sought to lay blame for the rising health rates on Gov. Ned Lamont’s administration.
“The Lamont administration’s approval of these staggering rate hikes is infuriating,” Kelly and Hwang said. “It’s also tone deaf to thousands of Connecticut ratepayers whose family budgets are already getting crushed by inflation.”
At an unrelated event Friday, Lamont called the requested rate hikes “outrageous” and said his administration would “sit down and do the hard negotiations to see what they deserve.”
