Connecticut Legislators Pat Themselves on the Back But Neglect the Clean Water Fund

Connecticut legislators were practically standing in line yesterday to tell the New Haven Register what a great job they did in Hartford on environmental issues. Except of course, as the Register points out, they neglected to provide money for the Clean Water Fund and the cleanup of Long Island Sound. From the Register:

"I think we've done quite well this year," said state Rep. Richard Roy, D-Milford...

Senate committee co-chairman Sen. Bill Finch, D-Bridgeport, said that, "From biodiesel investment to school bus emissions, this budget addresses a number of the major environmental initiatives of the session."...

The environment committee's top Republican, state Senate Minority Leader John McKinney, R-Fairfield, agreed. "On balance, we did a very good job," he said.
