Yankee Institute Statement on State Budget Agreement

Hartford (April 27) – “State lawmakers could leave Hartford without doing anything and the state budget would already be balanced, and our debt would decrease. Unfortunately, rather than using our remarkable surplus to pay down our also-remarkable level of pension and bonded debt, state officials are using it to juice their poll numbers with pre-election gimmicks. Meaningful tax relief would mean reversing the Malloy tax hikes that slammed working families—not spending the proceeds to reward towns for having high mill rates.”

Statement attributable to Carol Platt Liebau, President of Yankee Institute.
