Senator Moore Statement on Senate Passage of State Budget

Senator Marilyn Moore (D-Bridgeport) released the following statement regarding today’s Senate passage of the state budget:

“While I may not agree with everything that’s in this budget, with an 18-18 tie in the Senate, and narrow Democratic majority in the House, we needed to compromise in order to pass a budget that moves Connecticut forward and addresses structural changes to achieve long-term savings. My constituents have cried ‘get a budget’ and I believe we have come up with one that preserves and protects many of Connecticut’s essential services.

“One thing I am particularly proud of in this budget is that Connecticut’s Two Generation (2GEN) program—a model which I helped implement to help disadvantaged, low-income families sustain themselves—will grow from serving only five towns to now serving the entire State of Connecticut. Since launching the 2GEN model in 2015, Connecticut has become the posterchild in New England for this type of approach and I look forward to expanding its reach throughout our state.”
