February 12th, 2017 Dialogue Show:  

On this Dialogue edition, Steve Kotchko gets a Republican assessment of Governor Dannel Malloy’s new 2-year state budget from State House Republican Leader Themis Klarides.  She tells what she thinks about a new school funding program the governor is proposing, and whether towns can absorb funding cuts without hiking property taxes.  Representative Klarides also discusses Republican ideas to help balance the budget, and what will happen if Governor Malloy can’t get concessions from state employee unions to help cut the budget deficit.
