Sen. Kelly: CT Dems take “band-aid” approach to heating $ aid

February 14, 2024

Senate Minority Leader Kevin Kelly, R-Stratford, has been calling for more aggressive state intervention in heating assistance for the past two years.

And Tuesday he called the new supplemental appropriation too little and too late.

“Democrats took a wait-and-see approach to this crisis when lives have been in the balance, and this is their solution? A Band-Aid?” Kelly said “These are seniors on fixed income, the disabled, and children in need. They are being forced to make impossible decisions. Should I heat my home or pay my mortgage? Should I use my oven to keep my kitchen warm? These are choices no family should ever have to make.”
