Boucher Calls Malloy Administration’s Post-Election Deficits Inexcusable and Irresponsible

WILTON – The Connecticut General Assembly’s nonpartisan Office of Fiscal Analysis has released its annual state budget projections. The projections show a state deficit of more than $2.3 billion for the biennium following the 2014 gubernatorial election. State Sen. Toni Boucher made the following statement regarding the projections:

“It is inexcusable and irresponsible that the state is still facing deficits in the wake of a retroactive, record tax hike and the largest gas tax increase ever. By leaving this budget mess to be cleaned up after the election, the Malloy administration has demonstrated a clear unwillingness to make responsible budget decisions, offering no solutions besides tax increases. The public has had enough.”
