Democrats Announce Budget Plan with No Tax Increases

The House and Senate Democrats started this budget process back in January when we knew that spending changes would have to be made. Month by month, week by week, day by day, we went through the state's budget in a thoughtful, responsible way. Given this unique situation, we stepped back and rethought how we fund services in Connecticut. This lengthy process allowed us to consolidate government services and make targeted cuts. We have presented this plan to Governor Malloy and legislative Republicans, and are committed to passing a final budget that reflects the hard work we have done so far.

Our plan sends a strong message to taxpayers and the business community by avoiding burdening them with new taxes and fees.

  • This plan does not raise income taxes.
  • This plan does not raise sale taxes.
  • This plan does not raise business and corporate taxes.
  • This plan does not raise business fees.

By preventing deep cuts to hospitals and higher education, we position Connecticut's economy toward the future by leveraging a highly-educated workforce, bioscience and manufacturing sectors.

The Democratic plan creates fiscal accountability by consolidating government services, creating efficiencies and cutting spending to the level it was at four years ago. Additionally, we are reducing spending on nonunion state employees by capping nonunion pensions and increasing how much legislators and nonunion employees pay for our health care premiums and co-pays.
