New Fairfield lawmaker wants employee union contracts voted on by legislature

New Fairfield Representative Richard Smith is sounding off about the lack of a state budget.  One of the hold ups is that state employee unions haven't voted on a concession deal.  Smith says the state can no longer afford the onerous benefits to public employee unions.  He wants their contracts, negotiated by the governor, to be voted on by the legislature.  The Office of Fiscal Analysis reported income tax revenue is down $1.1 billion and sales and corporate taxes are projected to fall by $450 million.  Smith says this comes at the same time pension contributions to state employees have doubled since 2010.
