Governor Lamont Statement on Appropriations Committee Budget Proposal

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont today released the following statement regarding the budget proposed by the Appropriations Committee:

“I applaud the chairs and the entire Appropriations Committee for their leadership in putting forth a budget that seeks to improve education, protect Connecticut’s workforce through policies such as minimum wage and paid family leave, and grow our economy. I especially appreciate their support to grow good paying jobs here in Connecticut through funding of advanced manufacturing as well as their support of the structural reforms including municipal cost sharing in our teacher pensions, healthcare and debt proposed in my budget. We are in this together to ensure Connecticut is on a sustainable path forward. Over the course of the next few weeks, we have a lot of work to do as negotiations continue. I look forward to having more important conversations with my colleagues in the General Assembly in order to craft a final and honest budget which helps Connecticut grow good paying jobs, demonstrates that state government can live within its means and prepares our kids from Danbury to Danielson for a brighter economic future.”
