CCM Statement Assessing 2018 General Assembly Session and State Budget
For immediate release:
Kevin Maloney (203) 710-3486
The Connecticut Conference of Municipalities today (Thursday, May 10) expressed its gratitude for the bi-partisan efforts that resulted in the overwhelming approval of a revised state budget for next fiscal year, and one that significantly restores state aid to towns and cities for FY 2018-19.
The new state budget also does not include any new costly state mandates on cities and towns -- after several onerous mandates were in danger of passage in the last days of the session.
Looking forward back to top
CCM looks forward to continued discussions with state and business leaders about enacting more comprehensive structural changes to Connecticut’s state-local tax system – as called for in CCM’s “This Report Is Different“ and recommended by the recent State Commission on Fiscal Stability and Economic Growth.
CCM will launch a major public campaign this fall to further advance these fiscal issues – highlighted by the final gubernatorial debate (to be televised statewide) among the candidates at CCM’s annual statewide convention on October 30.
