State Senator Paul Formica represents the residents of the 20th Senatorial District, which includes Bozrah, East Lyme, a portion of Montville, New London, Old Lyme, a portion of Old Saybrook, Salem, and Waterford. He was elected in 2015 and is currently serving his second term.
The legislature has officially passed a bipartisan budget that now moves to the governor’s desk for his signature. This is a budget that restores education funding for our schools, that holds towns and cities harmless to cuts over the next two years, that restores funding for core social services that help the most vulnerable, and that does not impose new taxes on CT residents.
This historic and now bipartisan budget deserves support, not a veto from the governor. A veto will mean chaos as the governor’s drastic executive order cuts to schools would go into effect in October and the state’s deficit becomes harder to solve as each day goes by. A veto should not stand in the way of a budget that aims to restore confidence in our state.
Formica urged listeners this morning: Call Governor Malloy at (800) 406-1527 to tell him “Don’t veto this budget!”
