City, town officials voice disapproval of 'doomsday budget'
Representatives from more than 70 municipalities came together at the capitol today to express their across-the-board disapproval for Gov. Dannel Malloy's (D-Conn.) contingency budget plan.
The governor has been counting on $2 billion in union concessions and if that fails, cities and towns could lose one-third of their state funding under the governor's so called "Plan B" budget.
City leaders say anything less than the flat funding levels proposed earlier this year would be catastrophic and lead to either municipal layoffs or property tax increases.
Malloy is currently in negotiations with the state's 13 unions.
Both legislative Democrats and Republicans plan to release their budget proposals next week.
