HARTFORD- State Representatives Jason Perillo and Ben McGorty announced on Friday that they sent an official letter to Governor Dan Malloy and members of the Bond Commission asking them to remove an item on the bond agenda to bond $10 million to study tolls.

The Special State Bonding Commission is scheduled to meet at 10:30 a.m. next Wednesday, July 25th to approve the toll funding request submitted by Governor Malloy. As chairman of the commission, Gov. Malloy has the discretion to determine which items are included in the bonding meeting.

In the joint letter, Reps. Perillo and McGorty said, “The legislature made it clear in the 2018 session that we would not be moving forward with plans to study or place tolls throughout Connecticut. Governor Malloy should not sidestep the legislature. If the Bond Commission moves this item forward, we believe it will be an insult to lawmakers and Connecticut taxpayers.”

HARTFORD – State Reps. Jason Perillo and Ben McGorty announced yesterday that the House and Senate Republicans released their second complete balanced budget.

Reps. Perillo and McGorty said the Republican budget proposal restores funding to the Medicare Savings Program, funds the Retired Teachers’ Healthcare Fund, and fully funds the FY 2019 enacted Education Cost Sharing grants.

“We are providing a vision for the state that doesn’t require tax increases or funding cuts to people that need it the most,” said Rep. Perillo. “It’s clear that residents and businesses are fed up with the taxes they have to pay in Connecticut. We are continuing to listen to those who are tired of tax increases, and with this budget, we can start to regain their confidence in Connecticut.”

Rep. McGorty added, “It is critical that we prioritize spending. Our budget does that, and as a result, we are able to fully restore funding for the Medicare Savings Program and other much-needed programs. Democrats shouldn’t play party politics with the future of Connecticut, and instead, work with us to pass this forward-thinking budget.”
