Statement from Senate President Pro Tempore Looney on Governor Malloy’s Revised Executive Order Resource Allocation Plan

Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven) today issued the following statement following Governor Dannel P. Malloy’s announcement of a revised Executive Order Resource Allocation Plan:

“While we appreciate the Governor’s focus on our neediest municipalities, his proposed cuts would have a devastating effect on many school districts across Connecticut. Democrats in the Senate are dedicated to Connecticut’s great public education system and have been diligently working on a plan that will save school districts from the vast majority of these cuts.

“We intend to caucus with our members next week and continue our progress toward reaching a final budget agreement that provides predictability and stability to families, service providers and businesses.”
