Statement from Sen. Haskell, Sen. Bergstein, and Rep. Dathan on Proposed Regionalization

Today, State Senator Will Haskell (D-Westport), State Senator Alex Bergstein (D-Greenwich), and State Representative Lucy Dathan released the following joint statement and letter regarding recent bill proposals on regionalization:

“We have deep respect for Senator Looney and are always open to discussing the difficult issues facing our state, including the issue of regionalization, because finding efficiencies in state spending is a priority for us. However, we cannot support SB 454 to regionalize our schools. Nor can we support SB 431, which includes a property tax increase that would be devastating to residents of Fairfield County. Increasing property taxes only encourages people to leave CT and slows the economic rehabilitation of our state. As members of the Democratic caucus, we’re determined to make Connecticut a more affordable state for our constituents to live in.”
