Klarides Calls for Override on Gov. Malloy’s Veto of Bipartisan Bill to Restore Benefits for Seniors, Disabled

Posted on January 17, 2018 by admin


“It is unsurprising, but unfortunate, that the Governor has added to the angst of more than 100,000 Connecticut seniors and disabled with this veto. On the one hand, the Governor blocks statutory assurance that these most at-risk people will receive the benefits they rely upon. Then he declares that some who receive Medicaid have no requirement to seek employment if they are able. 2018 promises to be a interesting year in Hartford.”

The Medicare Savings Plan was approved with veto-proof margins in both the House and Senate.
