Last week State Senators joined together in a bipartisan effort to get the legislature to act on the state budget. Unfortunately, the Democrat Speaker of the House refused to sign off on the emergency certification needed to bring us into the chambers for a vote.
Senate Republicans have a complete budget that should have been voted on yesterday. We have a line-by-line budget that does not rely on new taxes and a budget that protects our towns and cities. But yesterday, in the final hours, when action was truly needed House Democrats refused to vote on any resolution that would have saved Connecticut from Executive Orders from the Governor which will needlessly and negatively impact many communities across the state.
As a State Senator I take my job very seriously and with the state on the edge of a fiscal cliff I remain committed to providing Connecticut residents with a complete and balanced budget.
Yesterday Senate leaders on both sides of the aisle were ready to stand up and be counted. It was extremely disappointing that this same commitment to enact change was not seen from all yesterday at the Capitol. Now more than ever we all must roll up our sleeves and work together to get a budget passed, a budget that moves Connecticut in a new direction.
