Looney Statement on Senate GOP Transportation Plan

Today, Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven) released the following statement in response to the Senate Republican transportation plan:

“We appreciate Senator Fasano’s plan and his continued work to find a bipartisan solution to Connecticut’s transportation crisis. We agree that our Rainy Day Fund is currently at a historically high level and that the bipartisan budget passed in 2017 established policies to promote future fiscal stability.

“We are conferring with the Office of Fiscal Analysis and analyzing the numbers in the Senate Republican plan.

“I look forward to coming to a bipartisan solution on transportation which accomplishes all the critical projects in the CT 2030 transportation plan presented by Governor Lamont. As with the Fiscal Year 18-19 state budget mentioned by Senator Fasano, Connecticut succeeds best when both parties work together.”
