After making historic pension payments, we're saving about $440M a year going forward. That means we're going to invest more in our kids, families, businesses, or communities. It also means our retirees can rest easier knowing we're keeping our pension promises of the past.

Being able to cut taxes while also strengthening social programs is a win that didn't happen overnight. It took time and effort to get our fiscal house in order, resulting in a budget surplus that has helped us also pay down $5B+ of our long-term pension debt.

Working people and middle-class families are bearing the brunt of inflation, a problem experienced around the globe. That’s why our budget cuts $600M+ in taxes, taking immediate action to put 💵 back in folks’ pockets while also making CT more affordable in the long-term.

Look at our budget as a reflection of CT's values. We invested historic amounts in our kids and families without cutting critical services. Here's the kicker: we did it while also putting money back in the pockets of workers & middle-class families. That's the #CTdifference.

What we've done with our budget, including these tax cuts, is a way of telling the people of Connecticut, "We get it. We've got your back." It’s a tough time with inflation, and we’re doing everything we can to make our state more affordable.

Incredible seeing how eggs are gathered, sorted, and packaged at New England's largest egg farm, Hillandale Farms in Bozrah. ICYMI, our #CTdifference budget invests $14M to support climate smart farming practices, climate resiliency, and agricultural innovation.

There’s no better way to show support for #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth than by highlighting how we take mental health and wellbeing seriously in Connecticut. Our recently passed budget expands these critical services to kids and families across our state.

I took two new @Toyota hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles for a spin today. They sure have some juice! It's clear the future of transportation is clean, green, and exciting, especially with automakers racing to change the game every day.

From historic tax cuts to holding down the costs of healthcare, childcare, and college tuition, we're making Connecticut more affordable for our working folks and middle-class families. That's the Connecticut Difference. rep-am.com/top-stories/2022/…

Connecticut has the best teachers in the nation. Being able to celebrate them tonight at the Teacher of the Year Gala was an honor. We’ll continue to do everything we can to give kids the very best at the starting line of life, including investing in education & mental health.
