Connecticut Legislators Meet in Hartford to Acknowledge Implicitly That They Blew It By Not Putting Money Into The Clean Water Fund

It seems as if a fair number of Connecticut legislators were at the Clean Water Fund meeting in Hartford yesterday and that they were in general agreement that they screwed up big time in recent years by not putting money into the fund. Here’s the Connecticut Post’s coverage.

Its probably true, as some people in Connecticut have been suggesting, that the fund needs about $150 million so the Long Island Sound cleanup (and other water quality projects) can continue. It’s also probably true that if they ask for $150 million they might get the $70 million that Terry Backer and others have been saying is needed. In any case, all kinds of people were in Hartford yesterday throwing around the $150 million figure.
