May 23, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty (CT-5) today released the following statement regarding President Trump’s Fiscal Year 2018 budget proposal:

“Our goal should be a budget that expands economic opportunity in Connecticut and across the country, lifts wages, promotes access to health care, protects our air and water, supports children and seniors, and makes us safer. On these counts, President Trump’s proposal moves us in the wrong direction. Congress should start over from scratch on a bipartisan plan.”
