State Government Leadership Foundation: “Everyone Agrees, Governor Malloy’s Backroom Deal with Big Government Unions Is Bad for Connecticut” 

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Today, the State Government Leadership Foundation (SGLF) announced that it has released an ad to run statewide in Connecticut to educate residents on the sober reality of the backroom deal struck by Governor Dan Malloy and big government union leaders.

“Connecticut is already one of the country’s highest taxed states and these high tax rates are forcing many families and jobs out of the state,” said Matt Walter, SGLF Executive Director. “Legislators from both political parties are concerned that Governor Malloy’s agreement doesn’t go far enough to save the state money and will ultimately lead to even higher taxes which will further cripple Connecticut’s economy.”

“The current budget crisis underscores what people in Connecticut already know, the state is on the wrong track,” said Walter. “The agreement between Governor Malloy and government union bosses just maintains the status quo for Connecticut and kicks the can down the road, tying the hands of policymakers for at least the next ten years.”

The ad will run statewide on television and through digital channels.

SGLF is a 501 (c)(4) social welfare organization and a strategic partner to the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC)—home to the Republican Lieutenant Governors Association, Republican Legislative Campaign Committee and the Republican Secretaries of State Committee.

SGLF promotes innovative reforms advocated by conservative, elected leaders and defends them when the special interest proponents of the status quo attack them. SGLF is dedicated to educating policymakers and the public about the benefits of smaller government, lower taxes, balanced budgets and efficient governing.
