Intelligent bonding necessary for Connecticut’s welfare

This year the state borrowed approximately $2.7 billion by way of bonding – a lot money no matter how you look at it. As a matter of fact, it is the most the state has ever bonded. The cost of this year’s bonding is around $8,350,000 per annum in interest.Intelligent bonding is a necessary part of efficient working and modern government. When all is said and done, when you include the jobs created, resulting new tax revenue, and the like, the state bonding at 3.07 percent should result in a handsome profit.
