The Wheelhouse: Drowning in Deficits

Mar 30, 2016

In his February budget address, Gov. Dannel Malloy outlined the challenges facing the state government. "Connecticut state government must reset our expectations of what we can afford, how we provide services, and how we save for our priorities," said Malloy. "It won't be easy, and it often won't be politically popular." That last part is becoming increasingly evident.

As lawmakers met on Tuesday to continue working on the budget deficit, hundreds of state employees rallied against layoffs and concessions. The budget woes in Hartford are trickling down to cities and towns too.
