HARTFORD – State Representatives Jason Perillo and Ben McGorty released the following statements regarding Governor Ned Lamont’s budget proposal.
Rep. McGorty added, “Governor Lamont’s budget sends the wrong message to the taxpayers of Connecticut. The governor’s budget will take more money out of our paychecks and wallets to cover unnecessary government waste. We need to stop the spending and give residents and businesses a break from the onslaught of tax increases.”

HARTFORD – State Rep. Ben McGorty summited testimony in the Public Safety and Security Committee yesterday in support of House Bill 5658 which looks to restrict the use of steady illuminated red and blue lights to police vehicles only.
Rep. McGorty, who introduced the bill, urged the committee to support the legislation because he has received complaints from residents that certain vehicles such as ridesharing cars use glowing logos that could be mistaken as a police vehicle.
“Glowing logos in the windshield for popular rideshare companies Lyft and Uber help passengers identify what vehicle to get into. However, the illuminated lights drivers use are distracting motorists on the road. The use of this industry provided illuminated lighting is representing the vehicle in some situations, mistakenly, as an emergency vehicle,” explained Rep. McGorty.
