Senate President Martin Looney (D-New Haven) and Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) released the following statement concerning today’s budget projections from the Office of Fiscal Analysis.
“We are prepared to do what is necessary to balance Connecticut’s budget,” said Sen. Looney. “Today’s projections reinforce the need to find additional efficiencies and savings across government. That’s why we have already made structural changes to save half a billion dollars over the next two years.”
“While we continue to increase jobs and see growth in the state’s economy, we are impacted by a slower international and national economy,” said Sen. Duff. “One only needs to look at the stock market averages to see the challenges we face. We have always worked to make the right decisions for the long-term and we will stay focused on meeting the needs of our citizens in the most efficient and effective way possible.”
