Construction workers will rally at the state capitol this afternoon in support of Gov. Malloy’s $44 billion budget proposal. The governor’s office says his budget “will create thousands of construction jobs in the state.”
Tradesmen and construction workers do indeed have something to thank Malloy for: Malloy has already won funding for the massive $300 million Jackson Labs expansion at the University of Connecticut Health Center, the nearly $600 million Busway is well under way. Meanwhile, there are nearly $1 billion in school construction grants are proposed in his current budget.
The “rally” is in the Old Appropriations Room at the capitol at 2 p.m.
