Warns Constituents of Impending Funding Cuts as a Result of Governor’s Veto
HARTFORD – State Representative David Rutigliano (R-123) condemned the governor’s decision to veto the Bi-partisan state budget that passed the General Assembly on September 16th.
“With this veto, the governor has put this state into complete chaos,” said Rep. Rutigliano. “Trumbull taxpayers will be forced to feel the undue budget pain under the governor’s executive order. The Governor’s has repeatedly said he will punish well-run towns like Trumbull in favor of mismanaged cities on the brink of fiscal bankruptcy. This budget was not perfect, however it did not contain the over 1.2 billion in new taxes proposed by the Democrats, I call on the General Assembly to override the governor’s veto.”
The governor’s veto means that a state budget will not be in effect by the October 1st Education Cost Sharing (ECS) payment deadline leaving several towns, including Trumbull to face across the board cuts in municipal aid, education funding, and elimination of core government services.
