“It is disappointing that the governor has decided to hold our cities and towns in the Northwest Corner 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, to close the deficit. 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 for our intellectual and developmentally disabled population.”
Jay Case, 64th District
