Legislators: Reject the Plan to Decimate CT’s Quality of Life
Last week, state legislators nearly passed Governor Malloy's disastrous state budget that would have destroyed vital services for working families, raised property taxes and laid off up to 5,000 public employees. Fortunately, enough lawmakers recognized the proposed package’s threat to Connecticut’s quality of life and blocked its passage just before the end of the General Assembly’s regular session.
But lawmakers are expected to reconvene on May 12 in a special session to again take up the same bad budget deal. We must make our voices heard today to assure legislators reject a plan that will protect the wealthy at the expense of Connecticut’s working and middle class families.
Tell your representative and senator to VOTE NO on austerity, NO on cutting public services or the workers who provide them and NO on property tax hikes.
