Connecticut General Assembly Goes Full Authoritarian

In the final moments of the 2024 Legislative Session on Wednesday (May 9), the Senate rushed through a controversial bill — effectively bypassing standard legislative procedures in an election year — and gifted big labor a potential “win.” 

The bill, which passed across party lines (23-12), sneakily establishes a “slush fund” in the Office of the State Comptroller (OCS), and masquerades as a lifeline for “low-income” workers. In reality, it’s a thinly veiled scheme to line the pockets of union members choosing to go out on strike. Astoundingly, this was done without public input or the usual legislative due diligence, raising concerns about transparency and the democratic process.
