Text of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s 2017 State of the State

“Cuts in specific areas, or outright eliminations, should not be taken to mean that certain work is not valued.  It simply means that we can no longer afford to do it all, and that our spending must be focused on the very core, essential services for our residents.
And to be clear, saving money isn’t just about cutting line-items, or reducing headcount.  Agencies will continue to modernize systems, reduce waste, and increase productivity in order to cut costs as much as possible before impacting services, or the valuable employees who provide them.”

Bill checklist: Track what happened to key legislation

Legislators considered hundreds of bills during the session that ended June 3, and only a fraction made it through both chambers. (Some got revived in a budget implementation bill that passed during the June 29 special session.) We’ve designed this tool to help you see what happened to key legislation — what passed the House and Senate, what didn’t make it up for a vote in one or both chambers, and what gets signed or vetoed by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.
