Not Good Public Policy

Several weeks ago, my legislative colleagues and I were called back in for a special session to review a series of bills recently vetoed by Governor Dannel Malloy. Going into this special session, we had expected to, at the very minimum, address a bill to expand school safety for teachers and students (P.A. 18-89), another to prohibit the governor from making cuts or reductions to Educational Cost Sharing grants (P.A. 18-157), and also restructure the amount promised by Governor Malloy to the capitol city in the bailout bill (P.A. 18-35).

I was proud to stand up against Governor Malloy’s vetoes to legislation that would make our state safer and more fiscally stable. Unfortunately politics, not good public policy, won the day, to the detriment of Connecticut families.

The four other bills vetoed by the governor that we could have overridden include:

• Public Act 18-18, An Act Extending the Manufacturing Apprenticeship Tax Credit to Pass-Through Entities.

• Public Act 18-140, An Act Establishing the State Oversight Council on Children and Families

• Public Act 18-156, An Act Concerning an Animal Abuse Registry

• Public Act 18-119, An Act Concerning Election Day Registration Locations

During the regular session, all seven of these bills received more than favorable support from caucuses in both the House and Senate. Despite this, none of the legislation that had been previously vetoed by Governor Malloy were overridden by the legislature.
