Last night, we passed a bipartisan budget adjustment that fully restores the Medicare Saving Plan program for seniors and the disabled, restores critical education funding to East Windsor and Ellington, properly funds teachers’ healthcare, and sures up the Special Transportation Fund without raising taxes or implementing tolls.
WATCH my remarks on the budget by clicking on the photo below:
A compromise budget adjustment passed through the House late Wednesday. The plan doesn’t increase taxes while also restoring Medicare Savings Program funding. Crucially, the budget protects state aid to municipalities and school districts while inhibiting Gov. Malloy’s ability to cut funding for cities and towns as he did under his authority following passing of the bipartisan budget last October. Christopher Davis explains.

The budget adjustment contains no tax increases, a critical requirement that Republicans insisted on. As Ranking Member of the Finance, Revenue, and Bonding Committee, I was able to help negotiate numerous cost-savings measures into the budget plan, including a hard hiring freeze on new state employees to save $7 million.
In addition, I helped secure language in the legislation that would inhibit Gov. Malloy’s ability to cut funding for towns and cities as he did to Ellington under his authority following the passage of the bipartisan budget last October.
In addition, the bipartisan deal features:
– Restored education funding to East Windsor and Ellington, including a restoration of over $1 million to Ellington schools.
– $5 million for emergency placement for the developmentally disabled
– A much needed cost of living increase for private service providers who save the state billions of dollars.
– An additional $12.5 million to support VoAg schools to help train our future workforce
– Funds Regional Fire Training Schools throughout the state
– Curtails future state assistance to Hartford following Governor Malloy’s debt service bailout agreement
– Provides critical new funding to the state’s dairy sustainability program
