Democrats Cave to Malloy, Let Vetoes Stand

Posted on June 28, 2018 by admin


The failed veto session on June 25 was a charade perpetrated by the Democrats that run the legislature on state taxpayers, public school teachers, parents and those who value honest government.

By calling lawmakers back to Hartford the majority party falsely signaled that it was interested in overriding at least some of the seven bills that Gov. Malloy rejected with the stroke of his pen. All of the legislation – making schools safer, scaling back the Hartford bailout deal, extending tax credits to manufacturers and preserving education for towns and cities – initially passed with veto-proof margins in both the House and Senate.
