Statement From Senate President Pro Tempore Looney Regarding Today’s Consensus Revenue Report

Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven) today released the following statement regarding the April 30, 2018 consensus revenue report:

“The consensus revenue report is certainly very welcome news for Connecticut’s budget. The reforms adopted as part of the bipartisan budget will lead to more than $1.5 billion being deposited into the state’s Rainy Day Fund and a stronger, more stable economic outlook. Now that we have the consensus revenue report, I look forward to working with my Democratic and Republican colleagues on making adjustments to the bipartisan budget in order to better fund public education, protect aid to cities and towns, and end the year with a balanced budget.”
