An area legislator is expressing frustration with the state budget crafting process. Connecticut is spending more thant it takes in according to Newtown state Representative Mitch Bolinsky, who says that's just plain wrong. He says residents are sick and tired of that practice.
He says it looks to his constituents, who noticed, that 42 percent of Connecticut voters were locked out of the process all together. Bolinsky says because of the example set by the Appropriations Committee early on, he expected more and is deeply disappointed.
Bolinsky says he is still shocked there wasn't a single Republican voice in the room when the new two-year state budget was being put together.
