Nonprofits Worry Neediest Will Suffer If Governor ‘Placates’ Businesses

Printer-friendly version

Officials who run nonprofit organizations funded by the state said they were devastated by Malloy’s announcement Friday regarding the elimination of some of the new taxes that large corporations found objectionable. Eliminating or reducing those taxes triggers the need to cut $223.5 million more in spending.

Patrick Johnson, interim executive director of the Connecticut Association of Nonprofits, called Malloy’s announcement Friday “shocking and devastating.” He encouraged Malloy to sign the budget approved by the General Assembly without making any changes.
