Gov. Malloy’s announcement that his administration has reached a deal with state employee union leaders means the process of plugging $2 billion budget gap with cost-cutting and union concessions is nearly done.
Malloy’s budget proposal wasn’t initially greeted kindly by Connecticut voters, but the last Hearst CT poll we ran on the blog, more than 60 percent of respondents said they agreed with Malloy’s initial plan to send layoff notices to state employees.
Now that the unions and the Malloy administration have reached a deal, what do you think of the governor’s handling of the budget?
To get a more accurate picture of public opinion than a simply yes-or-no vote, we’ve broken it down further. If you approve, just vote yes.
If you disapprove, we’re curious why:
Is it because the budget contains too many tax hikes and not enough cost-cutting, or because the governor asked for too many union concessions and didn’t raise taxes enough?
Vote blow and leave a comment to tell us what you think.
