Package Restores Funding to Hospitals & Maintains Core Government Service
State Representatives Jason Perillo (R-113), Ben McGorty (R-122) and Senator Kevin Kelly (R-21) stood with Senate and House Republicans today, proposing a plan to close the 2016 budget deficit and restore funding to Connecticut hospitals.
“Merely three months ago majority Democrats advanced an inadequate budget fix in special session that was in deficit almost immediately,” said Rep. Perillo. “We are now standing at $220 million in deficit in the final months of this budget year. We offer these budget adjustments in an attempt to provide an alternative that preserves necessary services and the safety net for those most in need, while making strategic, targeted cuts during this budget’s final months.”
