HARTFORD – State Representative Vincent Candelora today expressed disappointment that the Governor vetoed the only state budget to pass the General Assembly with bipartisan support. Legislators now are calling on support to override the veto.
“Sadly, Governor Malloy has vetoed our budget and somehow believes that Connecticut is better off. He has no viable alternatives and would rather cut local schools $600 million, shift teacher retirement costs to our towns, and continue to underfund necessary social services,” said State Rep. Candelora. “The Democrat Majority in the General Assembly really needs to consider overriding this veto. Republicans are ready, willing and able.”
