How Senate Voted: Revised State Budget

How Senate Voted: Revised State Budget

On Monday, June 29, the state Senate approved a revised state budget, rolling back approximately $178 million in tax hikes included in the original budget adopted by the General Assembly on June 3.

The 19-17 vote came after an on-again, off-again seven-hour debate, with Democrats Joan Hartley (Waterbury) and Paul Doyle (Wethersfield) joining all Republicans in opposing passage–replicating the chamber’s vote on the original budget.

Even in its revised state, the two-year budget still increases taxes by about $1.3 billion, while canceling close to $500 million in previously approved tax hikes .
