“We share Gov. Malloy’s frustration over the state budget impasse given that Republicans have put forth numerous budgets and cost saving SEBAC alternatives. We are asking Gov. Malloy to reconsider expanding bus service to the UConn campuses at this time as services for the needy, including elderly food programs and support for the disabled, are being cut.

HARTFORD – House Republican Leader Themis Klarides today charged that Democratic leadership forced a vote on the SEBAC union concession plan without any independent analysis, and then refused GOP efforts to vote on the Republican budget.
“We have no independent verification as we always have regarding the costs of this plan. This was rushed through by the Democratic leadership who have refused an up or down vote on our Republican plan because they are afraid our plan will pass,’’ Klarides said.
