Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy has abandoned his proposal to give a $55-per-person tax refund this year. This comes after it was announced on Monday that that state’s tax return revenue is below what had been anticipated.
GOP leaders in the Connecticut legislature criticized Governor Dannel Malloy’s budget projections on Monday. The Republican leaders said the numbers don’t add up in the governor ’s 2015 budget proposal.
Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy says he will seek a second term in office. The Democrat made the announcement Friday following a meeting of the State Bond Commission. Malloy previously said he would unveil his decision after the legislative session adjourns in May. He said he and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman made a "mutual decision" to run again and "intend to be around a while." Republicans who are running for governor include Senate Minority Leader John McKinney, Greenwich businessman Tom Foley, and Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton.
