Groton – State Senate Minority Leader John McKinney, R-28th District, will host a state budget forum from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, April 4 in the auditorium of the City of Groton Municipal Building.
It is the sixth stop on McKinney’s statewide "Fiscal Responsibility Tour," to discuss Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's budget proposal and to gather public input for the coming legislative debate. Other stops on the tour include Danbury, Enfield, Greenwich, Manchester, Stratford, Westbrook, and Wallingford.
Open to the public, Thursday night’s forum will include a brief presentation of the governor's budget proposal and an update on the budget process in the General Assembly, followed by a question and answer period for the general public.
McKinney said he expects that the budget the legislature ultimately votes on and passes will look much different from the governor’s current proposal.
"There are simply too many holes in the governor's budget for it to gain legislative approval without significant changes. I want Connecticut residents to be heard as those changes are being considered by their elected representatives,” he said.
The Groton Municipal Building is located at 295 Meridian St.
