Local Lawmakers Vote Against Tax Hikes and Anti-Business Policies Laden in New Biennial Budget

Posted on June 5, 2019 by admin


HARTFORD – At approximately 10:30 Monday night, after a full day of debate, the House of Representatives passed a biennial budget with a vote of 86-65. All Republicans, including State Representatives Kathleen McCarty (R-Waterford) and Holly Cheeseman (R-East Lyme), and a few Democrats, voted against the plan.

“Connecticut is still facing considerable fiscal challenges,” said Rep. McCarty, member of the Appropriations Committee. “This budget has some good elements in it, no doubt, but overall it fails to offer innovative solutions that the state needs to fix its structural problems. The re-amortization of the teacher pensions will cost the state an additional $17 billion going forward.  The state must protect its hard-working teachers, ensure the solvency of the pension fund and contribute the state’s share on an annual basis. We need to provide our residents with the confidence that our state’s fiscal house is in order. Taxing businesses and adding nearly $2 billion in new taxes is not the way to build economic growth. I am disappointed that the state budget does not protect businesses, nor our middle class residents.”
