HARTFORD – State Representative Stephen Harding on Wednesday voted against a union deal to increase the pay and give bonuses to lawyers at the state Attorney General’s Office.
The two-year pay deal for lawyers working for the Attorney General’s Office will cost taxpayers $5 million. This includes stipends for department heads in the amount of $6,000 in the first year and $12,000 in the second year.
“When we are facing a $3 billion dollar deficit and the governor has proposed cutting funding to local education and critical services, I question where the legislature’s priorities lie,” said Rep. Harding. “We need to be far better stewards of money from the hard-working taxpayers of this state.”
