The Talk of Connecticut
Will Connecticut finally adopt a spending cap?
0 0

When Connecticut's General Assembly passed a state income tax in 1992, voters responded by passing a constitutional spending cap on the state budget. However the cap was never instituted by the state legislature and the attorney general ruled because of the lack of action by the General Assembly, the state really doesn't have a cap despite voters' approval.

On Monday's CT On The Hill, we'll discuss how the legislature ignored the will of the people. The timing is perfect, as the legislature's Appropriations Committee holds a Monday public hearing on a spending cap.

Plus your calls.

CT On The Hill starts at 9 a.m.
