Senate president strongly backs Malloy’s approach to the budget
Senate President Pro Tem Donald E. Williams Jr., D-Brooklyn, sat in tonight on Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s 13th town-hall meeting on the budget, a cordial meeting in Windham, a stop on the senator’s drive home from Hartford. Williams didn’t hear anything that made him think Malloy needs to take another approach to the budget.
“The framework he’s proposed is the framework the legislature should move forward. I would like to see that as soon as possible,” Williams said. “He is sticking to the framework he has proposed, and it’s a courageous framework. It’s one that makes sense in terms of moving Connecticut forward out of the economic ditch we’re in. I think he deserves credit for sticking to his guns.”
