Republican Legislative Leaders at the Budget Negotiation Table

House minority leader Themis Klarides and Senate minority leader Len Fasano.

State Republicans have long been asking to be "at the table" in budget negotiations. Now, with a massive deficit, they are finally getting what they wished for and they announced their proposed fixes. "We not only fix the problem we’re in now because that’s our statutory obligation, but we make structural changes so this state can sustain itself not for the next month, not the next six months, but for generations to come," said House minority leader ThemisKlarides. 

This hour, we hear from Republican legislative leaders to discuss the specific proposals to help mitigate and solve Connecticut's "permanent fiscal crisis."

GUESTS:

  • Themis Klarides - House minority leader
  • Len Fasano - Senate minority leader
