House Republican Caucus

The House Republican Caucus has 53 members serving 100 towns. We are dedicated to improving the lives of Connecticut families and the strength of our small business. In 2018 we successfully negotiated a bipartisan budget that places strict caps on borrowing and spending. We also imposed a cap on “volatility” making it so large short term spikes in revenue are placed in the Rainy Day Fund.
