Statements from Looney and Duff on Gov. Lamont’s Budget Address

Today, Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven) and Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) released the following statements following Governor Lamont's budget address.

 

“Governor Lamont put forth a responsible budget that addresses our deficit and invests in our economy,” said Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven). “Today was the beginning of the General Assembly’s budget process and I look forward to working together with him in crafting a final product. I want to thank the Governor for including critical policy proposals for Connecticut families including raising the minimum wage to $15 and a paid family and medical leave program.”

“I applaud Governor Lamont for tackling a number of important structural budget issues in his address today,” said Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk). “The Governor’s budget is a first step in the legislature’s budget process. Senate Democrats and myself will be evaluating and debating his proposals and many others in the months to come. I am particularly supportive of the Governor’s ideas to streamline state government by modernizing our IT infrastructure and moving more state functions online. However we move forward we need to ensure Connecticut’s budget works for middle class families, improves education, and invests in our economic future.”
