State Representative Whit Betts, R-Bristol, says the budget cuts announced by the Malloy administration on Thursday indicates trouble ahead. The governor’s budget director announced $50 million in budget cuts to municipalities, including $20 million in the Education Cost Sharing grant. Bristol is losing $250,000 promised by the state.
Betts told the Hartford Courant, “Can the community rely on what’s been promised? This signals the depth of the fiscal crisis.”
