HARTFORD – State Representative Leslee Hill (R-Canton) listened as Governor Lamont gave his first budget address to the General Assembly. His comments focused on the need for the state to embrace technology and to address the long-term financial issues by raising tax revenues.
“My optimism quickly turned to confusion as the governor presented his budget priorities today at the Capitol. He spoke of the need to modernize the state, making it more attractive for young people to be educated here and to eventually grow roots and live here. I agree with him, we need to make more business-friendly decisions so that people are confident to move here and grow businesses in our state. However, we can’t do this by increasing the cost of living,” explained Rep. Hill.
