SENATE APPROVES STATE BUDGET
House Meets Friday To Discuss Plan
The Senate today voted 21 to 15 in favor of a state budget package.
State Representative Matthew Lesser issued the following statement on the Fiscal Year 2017 budget:
“Although I am pleased that the final budget significantly reduces the impact on Middletown, I am still not able to support it. It does not do enough to protect the working families and taxpayers I was elected to represent. Weeks ago I asked Democratic leadership to pick a date other than Friday, and if I were present I would vote ‘no’.”
Rep. Lesser is out of state at a conference where he is a featured speaker on Connecticut’s Student Loan Bill of Rights.
