Buckbee Responds to Budget Veto


“It is disappointing that the governor has decided to hold New Milford responsible for the inadequacies of state government. By vetoing the bi-partisan budget, the governor is rubber stamping continued wasteful spending, poor fiscal policies, and a general lack of understanding for the needs of the residents of Connecticut. This veto demolishes education funding to our most vulnerable population, our children. It leaves Connecticut without a budget, but I will continue to fight for common sense policies that do not rely on tax increases or picking winners and losers. Now that we are back to the drawing board, I will commit to work towards a balanced budget that streamlines government and one that equitably funds its core functions such as life sustaining services, education, and programs to our intellectual and developmentally disabled population.”
