Says Governor and Legislature's Idea was Ridiculous from the Beginning



Manchester - Reacting to the decision todayby Justice Kathleen McGuire prohibiting the state from taking the Joint Underwriting Association (JUA)funds, CPR-Action Executive Director, Kevin Smith commented:


"It was ridiculous for Governor Lynch and the Legislature to think they could just 'steal' from the JUA account to balance the state budget, which has ironically now cost the state more in legal fees than had they just not done it. As before, we encourage the Governor and theLegislature to find additional cuts and efficiencies in the state budget so that a moreresponsible budget can becrafted."
