State tax revenue continues to fall short
Hartford (AP) - Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's budget office says the latest estimates from the state's legislative and executive branch budget offices show Connecticut's tax revenues have fallen behind by $52.7 million since April, when the last revenue estimates were released.
But House Republican leader Lawrence Cafero Jr. on Friday said the administration should have revealed that revenues in total have fallen at least $128 million behind what was originally budgeted.
Office of Policy and Management spokesman GianCarl Casa said the administration is not trying to hide anything and OPM was just comparing two revenue estimates. He said state lawmakers will be briefed on the details on Wednesday.
