Malloy’s Budget Passes House

Posted on May 4, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Just before midnight last night (hey, they beat the Senate’s 3 a.m. decision!), the House approved Gov. Malloy’s budget by a vote of 83 to 67.

The budget includes a $2 billion “placeholder” for concessions.

Gov. Malloy released a statement saying:

“…Now it’s up to my Administration to reach an agreement with our fellow state employees and to present it to the legislature for ratification.  I remain hopeful that we’ll get there.   If we don’t, I remain committed to presenting an alternative budget to the General Assembly in the next couple of weeks.
 
Make no mistake: come July 1, Connecticut will have an honest, balanced budget in place.  No smoke, no mirrors.  A solid foundation for the future.”
 
Malloy is expected to sign the budget at 3 p.m. today.
