HARTFORD – Finance Committee Ranking Member, State Representative Christopher Davis (R-57), after hours of debate opposed the Democrat budget that increases state spending on new and expanded programs despite massive projected deficits, raises hundreds of millions in sales taxes, raids the transportation fund to pay for new General Fund expenses, and hikes income taxes on thousands of small business owners.
Rep. Davis commented, “I approached this budget as a concerned taxpayer, a small businessman and as a father. Citizens are right to be concerned about the direction of our state. This budget squeezes the middle class from every direction. Families will have to pay more for every day goods and services from the grocery store to online services such as Netflix.”
