HARTFORD – State Representative Robert Siegrist 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.
“It is an absolute shame that Governor Malloy vetoed a budget that was bipartisan, and he claims that his actions are doing what is best for Connecticut. With no apparent options with regards to a budget alternative at this point, the governor is seeking to run the state by executive order,” said Rep. Siegrist. “I call on the Speaker of the House to pull us into session and I am hopeful that my colleagues in the House and Senate can come together to override the governor’s veto.”
