CT Senate GOP Blasts Dems’ Passage of “absurd”, “insulting” Slush Fund Legislation

May 9, 2024

Sen. Republican Leader Stephen Harding, Sen. Rob Sampson and Sen. Eric Berthel today issued the following statement regarding Democrats’ passage of a bill to create a slush fund for the State Comptroller.

“Democrats just voted for one of the most absurd bills we have ever seen. It had no public hearing. It had no definitions. It creates a slush fund for the State Comptroller. It is all about trickery and that is insulting to Connecticut taxpayers. This brazen bill epitomizes the arrogance of Democrats who control all the levers of power in Connecticut. It’s more fiscal mismanagement and another attempt to go around the fiscal guardrails. We urge the governor to veto this as soon as it hits his desk.”

All Senate Republicans voted no on the bill.
