Sen. Kelly applauds Gov. Lamont on budget remarks

April 20, 2023

For Immediate Release

Senate Republican Leader Kevin Kelly (R-Stratford) issued the following statement with regard to Gov. Ned Lamont’s comments today on the state budget.

“I applaud the governor for continuing to push for an honest, balanced and ‘gimmick-free’ budget. He is absolutely correct to highlight the fact that our responsible fiscal guardrails – which were unanimously renewed just two months ago – have served our state well and must be respected. I also applaud Gov. Lamont for continuing to push for a broad-based and robust tax cut for middle class families. Connecticut residents are overtaxed and struggling to make ends meet. They deserve tax relief that goes beyond even what the Governor has proposed – they deserve the maximum amount of tax relief we can afford. In the coming weeks, my Republican colleagues and I look forward to presenting our solutions to deliver exactly that.”
