State Sen. Toni Boucher (R-26) today voiced her disappointment that it appears the state will start the new fiscal year without a budget. On Tuesday, the Democrat Speaker of the House indicated he would not sign the document necessary for a special session to vote on the budget.
”We have had months to work this out, but instead of negotiating and passing a budget, legislators must now face constituents who want to know what we have been doing in Hartford since January,” Boucher said. “It’s infuriating. It’s embarrassing. Not only have the people of Connecticut been let down, on July 1, the state will cut millions of dollars in funding for hospitals, education, social services, and aid to towns. The results will be devastating.”
