Statement from Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney Regarding State Employee Contracts

Statement from Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven) regarding the Attorney General’s recent opinion regarding state employee contracts:

“The Attorney General’s opinion clearly highlights the constitutional dangers in the proposals put forth by the Senate and House Republicans. To represent the Republican plans as anything other than an extremely risky proposition is disingenuous. Republicans seem intent on creating their own Wisconsin moment here in Connecticut at the expense of tens of thousands of hardworking residents. Using this opinion as ammunition for their attack on workers’ rights is an intentional misinterpretation of the Attorney General’s cautionary statement and an attempt to shoehorn this opinion to fit their anti-worker ideology.”
