Republicans in the Connecticut Senate and House have unveiled a plan that would restore local aid to cities and towns. The funding had been cut by the Malloy administration in December.
“We want to be bipartisan if that is an option,” House Minority Leader Themis Klarides, R-Derby said during a late morning press conference in the Legislative Office Building. “We all could have been standing here today moving the state of Connecticut forward.”
Democrats were not so quick to praise Republicans, claiming the plan still needs to be reviewed, before jumping on board.
