    S.R. No. 11 SEN.  DIBELLA,  1st  DIST.  RESOLUTION  RAISING  A

                         JOINT CONVENTION

    The Honorable Senate,  preceded  by  the  Honorable Lieutenant
Governor and the  Clerks  of  the  Senate,  entered  the  House of
Representatives and met the House in Joint Convention.

    The  President  of the Senate called the Joint  Convention  to
order.

A. Devine of Waterbury, Connecticut.

    The following is the prayer.

    Let us pray:  Be  with  us,  O  Lord,  as  we gather, somewhat
apprehensively, in Joint Session to hear Governor Weicker's Budget
Message.  Budgets  are   very  difficult  whether  it  is  for  an
individual, school, church  and especially so for government where
there  are  so   many   variables   and   imponderables.  May  our
guesstimates be totally  realistic  so  that decisions may be less
cloudy and uncertain.  Confirm  our  Governor's sensitivity to the
needs of so many people. Inspire our legislators to look at budget
decisions in the  light  of  the support and help they can give to
all our fellow  citizens. We ask this through our Heavenly Father.
Amen.

    (a) There is  hereby imposed on the Connecticut taxable income

one-half per cent  of  such Connecticut taxable income for taxable
years commencing on or after January 1, 1992, AND PRIOR TO JANUARY
1, 1993. The provisions of this subsection shall apply to resident
trusts  and estates  and,  wherever  reference  is  made  in  this
subsection to residents  of  this  state,  such reference shall be
construed to include  resident  trusts  and  estates, provided any
reference  to  a  resident's  Connecticut  adjusted  gross  income
derived  from sources  without  this  state  or  to  a  resident's
Connecticut adjusted gross  income shall be construed, in the case
of a resident  trust  or  estate,  to  mean  the resident trust or
estate's Connecticut taxable  income  derived from sources without
this state and  the resident trust or estate's Connecticut taxable
income, respectively.
    (b) There is  hereby imposed on the Connecticut taxable income
derived from or  connected  with sources within this state of each
nonresident a tax  at  the  rate  of four and one-half per cent of
such Connecticut taxable income for taxable years commencing on or
after January 1, 1992, AND PRIOR TO JANUARY 1, 1993. The tax shall
be the product  of  an amount equal to the tax computed as if such
nonresident were a resident and then multiplied by a fraction, the
numerator of which is the nonresident's Connecticut adjusted gross
income derived from  or  connected  with sources within this state
and the denominator  of  which  is  the  nonresident's Connecticut
adjusted gross income,  provided, if the nonresident's Connecticut
adjusted gross income  is less than such nonresident's Connecticut
adjusted gross income  derived  from  or  connected  with  sources
within this state,  (1)  such  nonresident's  Connecticut adjusted
gross income derived  from  or  connected with sources within this
state, reduced by  the amount of the exemption provided in section

provisions of this  subsection  shall  also  apply  to nonresident

subsection to nonresidents  of this state, such reference shall be
construed to include  nonresident trusts and estates, provided any
reference to a  nonresident's  Connecticut  adjusted  gross income
derived from sources  within  this  state  or  to  a nonresident's
Connecticut adjusted gross  income shall be construed, in the case
of a nonresident trust or estate, to mean the nonresident trust or
estate's Connecticut taxable  income  derived  from sources within
this state and  the  nonresident  trust  or  estate's  Connecticut
taxable income, respectively.
    (c) There is  hereby imposed on the Connecticut taxable income
derived from or  connected  with sources within this state of each
part-year resident a tax at the rate of four and one-half per cent
of such Connecticut taxable income for taxable years commencing on
or after January  1,  1992,  AND PRIOR TO JANUARY 1, 1993. The tax
shall be a  product equal to the tax computed as if such part-year
resident were a  resident  and  then multiplied by a fraction, the
numerator  of  which   is  the  part-year  resident's  Connecticut
adjusted gross income  derived  from  or  connected  with  sources
within this state  and  the  denominator of which is the part-year
resident's Connecticut adjusted  gross  income,  provided,  if the
part-year resident's Connecticut  adjusted  gross  income  is less
than such part-year  resident's  Connecticut adjusted gross income
derived from or connected with sources within this state, (1) such
part-year resident's Connecticut  adjusted  gross  income  derived
from or connected  with  sources within this state, reduced by the
amount of the  exemption provided in section 12-702, shall be such
part-year resident's Connecticut  taxable  income  derived from or
connected with sources  within  this  state and (2) such part-year
resident's  Connecticut adjusted  gross  income  derived  from  or
connected with sources  within  this state shall be such part-year
resident's adjusted gross  income  for the purposes of determining
the credit pursuant  to  section  12-703.  The  provisions of this
subsection shall apply  to part-year resident trusts and, wherever
reference is made  in this subsection to part-year residents, such
reference shall be construed to include part-year resident trusts,
provided  any reference  to  a  part-year  resident's  Connecticut
adjusted gross income  derived from sources within this state or a
part-year resident's Connecticut  adjusted  gross  income shall be
construed, in the  case of a part-year resident trust, to mean the
part-year resident trust's Connecticut taxable income derived from
sources within this  state  and  the  part-year  resident  trust's
Connecticut taxable income, respectively.
    (d) The provisions  of  this  chapter shall be applicable with
respect to any person, trust or estate. Whenever, in this chapter,
"any person" appears  without  "trust or estate", the reference to
any person shall  be  deemed  to  include any trust and any estate
unless, in the  context of the particular provision, the reference
to any person could not be applicable in the case of a trust or in
the case of an estate.

    Strike out everything after the enacting clause and substitute
the following in lieu thereof:
    "Section 1. Section 12-700 of the general statutes is repealed
and the following is substituted in lieu thereof:
    (a) There is  hereby imposed on the Connecticut taxable income
of each resident  of  this  state  a  tax  [at]  FOR TAXABLE YEARS
COMMENCING ON AND  AFTER  JANUARY 1, 1992, AND PRIOR TO JANUARY 1,
1997, AS FOLLOWS:  AT  the  rate  of four and one-half per cent of
such Connecticut taxable  income  for THE taxable years commencing
[on or after] January 1, 1992, AND JANUARY 1, 1993; AT THE RATE OF
THREE AND ONE-HALF  PER  CENT  FOR  THE  TAXABLE  YEAR  COMMENCING
JANUARY 1, 1994;  AT THE RATE OF TWO AND ONE-HALF PER CENT FOR THE
TAXABLE YEAR COMMENCING  JANUARY  1,  1995; AND AT THE RATE OF ONE
AND ONE-HALF PER  CENT  FOR THE TAXABLE YEAR COMMENCING JANUARY 1,
1996. The provisions  of  this  subsection shall apply to resident
trusts  and estates  and,  wherever  reference  is  made  in  this
subsection to residents  of  this  state,  such reference shall be
construed to include  resident  trusts  and  estates, provided any
reference  to  a  resident's  Connecticut  adjusted  gross  income
derived  from sources  without  this  state  or  to  a  resident's
Connecticut adjusted gross  income shall be construed, in the case
of a resident  trust  or  estate,  to  mean  the resident trust or
estate's Connecticut taxable  income  derived from sources without
this state and  the resident trust or estate's Connecticut taxable
income, respectively.
    (b) There is  hereby imposed on the Connecticut taxable income
derived from or  connected  with sources within this state of each
nonresident a tax  [at]  FOR TAXABLE YEARS COMMENCING ON AND AFTER
JANUARY 1, 1992,  AND PRIOR TO JANUARY 1, 1997, AS FOLLOWS: AT the
rate of four  and  one-half  per  cent of such Connecticut taxable
income for THE  taxable  years commencing [on or after] January 1,
1992, AND JANUARY  1,  1993; AT THE RATE OF THREE AND ONE-HALF PER
CENT FOR THE  TAXABLE YEAR COMMENCING JANUARY 1, 1994; AT THE RATE
OF TWO AND  ONE-HALF  PER  CENT  FOR  THE  TAXABLE YEAR COMMENCING
JANUARY 1, 1995;  AND AT THE RATE OF ONE AND ONE-HALF PER CENT FOR
THE TAXABLE YEAR  COMMENCING JANUARY 1, 1996. The tax shall be the
product of an  amount  equal  to  the  tax  computed  as  if  such
nonresident were a resident and then multiplied by a fraction, the
numerator of which is the nonresident's Connecticut adjusted gross
income derived from  or  connected  with sources within this state
and the denominator  of  which  is  the  nonresident's Connecticut
adjusted gross income,  provided, if the nonresident's Connecticut
adjusted gross income  is less than such nonresident's Connecticut
adjusted gross income  derived  from  or  connected  with  sources
within this state,  (1)  such  nonresident's  Connecticut adjusted
gross income derived  from  or  connected with sources within this
state, reduced by  the amount of the exemption provided in section
12-702, shall be  such  nonresident's  Connecticut  taxable income
derived from or  connected  with sources within this state and (2)
such nonresident's Connecticut  adjusted gross income derived from
or  connected  with  sources  within  this  state  shall  be  such
nonresident's Connecticut adjusted  gross  income for the purposes
of  determining  the   credit  pursuant  to  section  12-703.  The
provisions of this  subsection  shall  also  apply  to nonresident
trusts  and estates  and,  wherever  reference  is  made  in  this
subsection to nonresidents  of this state, such reference shall be
construed to include  nonresident trusts and estates, provided any
reference to a  nonresident's  Connecticut  adjusted  gross income
derived from sources  within  this  state  or  to  a nonresident's
Connecticut adjusted gross  income shall be construed, in the case
of a nonresident trust or estate, to mean the nonresident trust or
estate's Connecticut taxable  income  derived  from sources within
this state and  the  nonresident  trust  or  estate's  Connecticut
taxable income, respectively.
    (c) There is  hereby imposed on the Connecticut taxable income
derived from or  connected  with sources within this state of each
part-year resident a  tax [at] FOR TAXABLE YEARS COMMENCING ON AND
AFTER JANUARY 1,  1992,  AND PRIOR TO JANUARY 1, 1997, AS FOLLOWS:
AT the rate  of  four  and  one-half  per cent of such Connecticut
taxable income for  THE  taxable  years  commencing  [on or after]
January 1, 1992,  AND  JANUARY  1,  1993; AT THE RATE OF THREE AND
ONE-HALF PER CENT FOR THE TAXABLE YEAR COMMENCING JANUARY 1, 1994;
AT THE RATE  OF  TWO  AND  ONE-HALF  PER CENT FOR THE TAXABLE YEAR
COMMENCING JANUARY 1,  1995;  AND  AT THE RATE OF ONE AND ONE-HALF
PER CENT FOR  THE TAXABLE YEAR COMMENCING JANUARY 1, 1996. The tax
shall be a  product equal to the tax computed as if such part-year
resident were a  resident  and  then multiplied by a fraction, the
numerator  of  which   is  the  part-year  resident's  Connecticut
adjusted gross income  derived  from  or  connected  with  sources
within this state  and  the  denominator of which is the part-year
resident's Connecticut adjusted  gross  income,  provided,  if the
part-year resident's Connecticut  adjusted  gross  income  is less
than such part-year  resident's  Connecticut adjusted gross income
derived from or connected with sources within this state, (1) such
part-year resident's Connecticut  adjusted  gross  income  derived
from or connected  with  sources within this state, reduced by the
amount of the  exemption provided in section 12-702, shall be such
part-year resident's Connecticut  taxable  income  derived from or
connected with sources  within  this  state and (2) such part-year
resident's  Connecticut adjusted  gross  income  derived  from  or
connected with sources  within  this state shall be such part-year
resident's adjusted gross  income  for the purposes of determining
the credit pursuant  to  section  12-703.  The  provisions of this
subsection shall apply  to part-year resident trusts and, wherever
reference is made  in this subsection to part-year residents, such
reference shall be construed to include part-year resident trusts,
provided  any reference  to  a  part-year  resident's  Connecticut
adjusted gross income  derived from sources within this state or a
part-year resident's Connecticut  adjusted  gross  income shall be
construed, in the  case of a part-year resident trust, to mean the
part-year resident trust's Connecticut taxable income derived from
sources within this  state  and  the  part-year  resident  trust's
Connecticut taxable income, respectively.
    (d) The provisions  of  this  chapter shall be applicable with
respect to any person, trust or estate. Whenever, in this chapter,
"any person" appears  without  "trust or estate", the reference to
any person shall  be  deemed  to  include any trust and any estate
unless, in the  context of the particular provision, the reference
to any person could not be applicable in the case of a trust or in
the case of an estate."

                          BUDGET ADDRESS
                  GOVERNOR LOWELL P. WEICKER, JR.
             HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, STATE CAPITOL
                         February 3, 1993

    Thank  you much.  Lt.  Governor  Groark,  Mr.  President,  Mr.
Speaker, members of  the  General Assembly and people of the State
of Connecticut. The  sound  and fury of political beliefs make for
good theatre. But  government, however, is the result of precisely
arrayed  numbers  on  paper.  But,  by  virtue  of  integrity  and
priority, give voice  to  the  aspirations  of  a people. Far from
being a dry  academic  exercise, a  budget  speaks  eloquently and
hopefully elegantly as  to  what  all  of us deem important in our
lives.

    For two years,  certain  circumstances  did  not  permit us to
reach beyond history  in our budget deliberations. The dispiriting
task of paying  for past excesses permitted for little vision. The
lessons of living  within our means and eschewing free lunches had
to be learned.  But, that task is now behind us. These budgets for
'93-'94 and '94-'95,  thanks  to  your  wisdom, the first biennial
budget presented to  the  State of Connecticut. These budgets lead
toward the new  century  with  changed priorities and state of the
art  knowledge,  all  the  while  remembering  lessons  of  fiscal
prudence only recently reacquired.

    It could be  said of the past that the life of Connecticut was
budgetarily exalted in  terms  of  adults, government and suburbs.
This budget belongs  to  children, all children, to private sector
jobs and urban  rebuilding. The fact that these budgets are honest
and not dragged  down  by  past  profligacy is a footnote of these
times--not the centerpiece of the document.

    I met with a young group of students from Greens Farms earlier
today. They asked  whether  this was the number one problem in the
State of Connecticut--the  budget, and believe me, it was a relief
to be able  to  respond no. Certainly, as much of a responsibility
to describe what our number one problem is, that being the economy
and jobs, what  a relief to say no. Nothing more clearly shows, or
rather nothing shows  more  clearly,  than  the  lack  of deficits
during the past two years how far we've come and how unlimited the
opportunities ahead.

    This budget contains  no  increases  in  the  income  tax--no
increase in the  sales  tax  rate  or  base  and  no  increase in
corporate taxes.

    Now, let me  explain  the  importance of this for the future.
The people of  Connecticut  paid  an enormous price in dollars to
rectify past political shenanigans. They then confounded accepted
political wisdom and  reelected  those  who  played straight with
them on the  deficit issue. In light of their laudatory behavior,
to respond with  any  increase  now in income, corporate or sales
taxes  would forever  foreclose  honest  recognition  for  future
problems by their  constituents. On this issue of taxes rests the
fragile trust our  people  have in their government, today and in
the future.

    This  budget  continues   our   efforts   to   downsize  state
government, presenting a  four  year  period  in which the rate of
growth of government expenditures has been cut almost in half.

    This budget represents a $544 million dollar spending cut from
current services in  fiscal  year  '93-'94  and an additional $401
million dollar cut  in fiscal '94-'95. The strength of this budget
is  not  in  the  dollars  to  be  spent  but  in  the  priorities
established and the ideas commenced.

    The number one  tenet  underlying  our  rebuilding efforts has
been that to  do  anything for its citizens, the government itself
must  be  economically   strong.   The  misguided  policy  of  the
1980's--that of burdening  Connecticut  businesses and individuals
with  excessive  taxes   to  pay  for  riotous  spending  in  good
times--set us up to be slam-dunked by a recession. It happened and
we're not going to try that game plan again. To paraphrase the old
saying: "once, shame on you; twice, shame on us."

    Now, if I  might depart from my prepared remarks, I understand
we've been busy  today! I'd like to sort of expound on that just a
bit if I  might.  First of all, I understand that you had a repeal
measure, for whatever  reason,  of  the  income tax. I gather this
keeps on coming  up.  I  just  want to warn all of you that one of
these days the dog's going to catch the car.

    But, more importantly,  I'd  like to comment on this matter of
repair as it's  been  presented.  And,  with  apologies  to  Dolly
Parton, and also  for  the  quality  of  my  voice, "here you come
again!" And, as the phrase concludes, "just when I've begun to get
myself together". Now,  I as your Governor, will take second place
to no one,  on  advocacy  for  the  income  tax and indeed for the
progressivity of it.  I  believe  in progressive taxation and that
those who are  better  off  should  pay  for  the  government. And
indeed, do you  want  to  know  what  my  greatest worry is? After
twenty years in  public service--and I think I've created a lot of
wonderful things in  the Senate and here--on my tombstone is going
to be the  damned  inscription,  "Here's  the Father of the Income
Tax". So I  want  to lay the basis as to where my philosophy lies.
It is with  progressivity,  but I want to tell you what's going on
with this repair bill.

    This was everyone's  worst  nightmare--that  we would put into
place a new revenue source, having run the well dry on sales taxes
and all the  rest  of the taxes that we had to go ahead with, that
we'd put into  place a new revenue source. And, yes indeed, within
a year and  a half of putting it in there, here we go! Again! And,
it couldn't come  at a worse time as I seek to bring business into
the State of Connecticut--to have our businesses expand. What kind
of a message  do  you  think  it  sends to the outside world, when
believe me, I  understand  the headline writers better than anyone
else. There, in  the  newspaper  tomorrow  will  be,  "Connecticut
Income Tax goes  from Four and a half to Six Per Cent." They won't
tell you who. It'll just be, there goes the rate.

    The income tax was important to this state, number one because
of its progressivity  and number two, because it provided a stable
engine  of  revenue,  of  consistency.  That's  what  business  is
interested in--consistency and  stability. Here we have a proposal
which initially was a big revenue raiser and then people scrambled
around to go and change it, which does little for the middle class
of Connecticut and  which  blows stability and consistency out the
window in terms  of  how  our  fiscal policy is viewed. Mark Twain
said it very  well  when he said "one of the brightest gems in the
New England weather  is  the  dazzling uncertainty of it." I don't
want there to  be any dazzling uncertainty as to the tax structure
of our State.

    I want to be progressive, but I want it to be stable and sure,
so that as  we're viewed by forty-nine other states and the world,
this is where  they  want  to  come. This indeed is once again the
land of steady  habits. I would certainly hope it is understood by
all those who  will  pass on this issue that, no I did not want to
raise taxes in  any manner, shape or form on anybody-- that I want
success, corporate and  individual, in the State especially now as
we need jobs.  We need purchasing. We need philanthropy. I want it
clearly understood that  the State of Connecticut is not returning
to the past.  That  we are not going to change our tax policies to
accommodate philosophy in  politics, but rather those policies are
there to run  a  state  in  a  well planned way and one, that once
again, wants to  become  the  industrial  giant that it has always
been - its place in history.

    I have no  desire  for  a confrontation on this issue with any
individual or party  in  this  Hall.  But,  my  job  as  the Chief
Executive of this  State,  is to keep a steady hand on that tiller
and to do  the  best I can, with you, to assure that everybody who
wants to work  in  the  State  of Connecticut has a job. So, let's
reason on this matter together and I'm sure all will turn out well
in the end.

    Now, our state's  job  prospects coming into the 1990's were a
mess.

         -    The highest corporate rate tax in the nation.

         -    The highest state sales tax.

         -    Among the highest loan defaults.

         -    No credit relief.

         -    No promotion of Connecticut as a place to do business.

         -    A government and legislature often downright hostile
              to business.

         -    And looming overall, a state verging on bankruptcy.

    This administration and the legislature took the field and set
four economic priorities:

         -    Get the state out of the hole and in shape to
              help...while reducing the tax burden on employers
              so they can invest in jobs.

         -    Provide relief from the credit crunch.

         -    Market Connecticut as a great place to do business.

         -    Make government user friendly.

    Two years later,  our  budget  is  balanced,  corporate  taxes
rolled back 20  percent,  the  sales  tax down 25 percent, and the
sales tax base for business has been reduced.

    We have a  $1  billion Connecticut Works Jobs Fund targeted at
credit relief.

    Our New Connecticut marketing campaign has already brought 600
businesses to our doorstep.

    Our environmental permit  backlog  is  down  by 50 percent and
businesses are finding that Connecticut is not here to hassle, but
for the first time, "here to help."

    Just take a  look  at  the  figures.  342  companies financed,
30,000 jobs secured through $785 million in new credit and capital
driven by our programs.

    That's progress and  we've  held  a steady course. This budget
continues and expands those efforts. I am proposing an increase of
$45 million in  direct  cash  lending authority to the Connecticut
Works Jobs Fund  to increase its wallop. With hundreds of millions
of already available  credit,  and  the active participation of 35
banks and 4  preferred lenders, the Jobs Fund will plow this state
right through the credit crunch.

    To address an acute need in one of Connecticut's key strategic
industries,  we  propose  redirecting  $10  million  of  currently
underutilized loan funds  into  an  Aerospace Subcontractor Fund to
keep our subcontractors  economically  viable  through the current
downturn  in  the  aerospace  industry,  and  it  should  position
Connecticut, with its  base of healthy subcontractors, to reap the
rewards when the industry rebounds.

    Now, Ladies and  Gentlemen,  right  here  is the best possible
example of how  we  have  to  help  ourselves.  At the root of the
problems of that  industry is the misuse of Chapter 11 -- airlines
going in and  out  of  bankruptcy  -- offering ridiculous fares --
undermining the fare structure of an industry. That's Washington's
job. Regulation has  produced  low cost air fares for New York and
Los Angeles and the highest fares in the country right out of here
from Bradley Field.  The  time has come to take a look at that and
whether or not we shouldn't re-regulate to establish service and a
fair structure of fares for all people of the Country.

    But, we can  help ourselves, and you know as well as I do that
it  isn't  just   a  question  of  Pratt  and  Whitney  --  United
Technologies. There are hundreds of subcontractors in little towns
all over this  State  and  they  don't have the cash reserves of a
UTC, and you ought to know that your State is going to stand right
by them until  we  get  through  this mess and we're going to keep
them alive.

    To further spur our recovery and enhance our future, I will be
proposing legislation to set up the Connecticut Future Works Fund.
This fund will  match  the $1 billion capacity of the Jobs Fund by
leveraging  private  capital   and   credit.  It  will  do  so  by
redirecting  funds  from  our  underutilized  Commercial  Mortgage
Insurance Program. Its  purposes  is  to  increase  support to our
small businesses, which  are  the  greatest  job generators in our
state;  to  increase  equity  capital  investment  in  Connecticut
companies which is  vital  for expansion, and to spur research and
product development which  will  provide  the  base for our future
growth.

    I am also  proposing  a  Technology Development Corporation to
raise capital to  buy,  sell,  or  license products of Connecticut
researchers; a Higher  Education  Enhancement  Program  to tie the
state's economic development programs into our State's college and
university research base,  and  a  joint  Department  of  Economic
Development/Connecticut   Development  Authority   initiative   to
provide  vigorous  export  financing  and  foreign  trade  support
services to Connecticut  business.That's where the market is, it's
the world, and  we've got to position ourselves to get into it and
to sell.

    Our vision of  the  Connecticut economy 20 years down the road
is of a  state known world-wide for its technology and the quality
of its products.  And  that's  nothing  new  for our state, that's
history. Each of  these  innovative  programs  helps strategically
position us for the future.

    We are also  proposing  reform  of  our  Worker's Compensation
System to enable our businesses to compete with other states whose
costs are lower  while  still  maintaining  fair  benefits for our
workers. And we  will  restore fiscal stability to our underfunded
unemployment  compensation system,  which  will  save  Connecticut
employers millions in interest charges over the next eight years.

    I want to also say here that these two go together. I hear all
these businessmen stomping  around  the place on worker's comp and
all the labor  people  around  here  on unemployment comp. Listen,
we're going to work this together. Everybody's coming to the table
to get this problem resolved, because it is problem.

  Let me conclude  the  jobs initiative where it should begin --
with our workforce.

    We talk of  technology  and  exports, defense diversification.
All are important  for  today.  But in the year 2000 one fact will
bless  or  doom  our  well-made  plans:  the  availability  of  an
educated, skilled workforce.

    Between 1980 and  1988,  43  percent  of  all  new  workers in
Connecticut were members of minority groups -- a percentage that's
only going to  increase  by  leaps  and  bounds in the future. The
majority of these  workers  will  come from our inner cities where
today, in our schools, they are victims of racial isolation.

    This is the  "jobs"  issue  long-term  and, like nothing else,
rectifying it is  in  our  economic  self-interest.  Ending racial
isolation by learning,  then  working together, is the linchpin of
Connecticut's future prosperity.

    Always, our obligation  is  to  look  ahead  and  whether  job
creation,  health  care,  a  clean  environment,  the  cities,  or
education, this budget  is  about  what  we  can  do now to better
position our tomorrows.

    Consider the health  care  crisis.  Today  the  high  costs of
health care eat  into  corporate profits and family budgets alike.
Money that could  be  used for reinvestment in jobs or for savings
for a home  or  for  a  college education, is no longer available.
Last year, Connecticut  spent $11.7 billion on health care. That's
$3,667 a person,  yet many of our citizens do not even have access
to basic health  care or are seriously under-insured. Children are
particularly hard hit,  representing  a  quarter of those who lack
insurance.

    The federal government  is  planning  to address this issue. I
was down in  Washington  this  past  weekend  and  I  congratulate
President Clinton for  putting  it at the head of the agenda. That
the federal government  is  planning  to  address this issue is no
reason  for us  to  delay  our  response  to  lowering  costs  and
expanding access.

    I want to make a special plea to the General Assembly since we
already are far  down  the  track  in terms of doing what's right.
Everybody talks about  health  care,  but  it isn't one issue it's
two. It's care  and  its's  health and its's time we divided these
two. One is  for  now,  the  costs  of care today, our generation,
older, etc. The other is the issue for the future as far as really
cutting  down  the  cost  -  to  do  the  things  we're  doing  in
Connecticut with the  younger  generations  so they don't have the
costs that we know lie ahead.

    This  budget  contains   a  major  redirection  of  funds  for
children's health programs.  To  play  upon  the title - yes, Kids
count. And this budget says so in dollars.

    Our  children's health  initiative  includes  state-subsidized
health insurance for  poor  children  throughout  Connecticut from
birth through age five who are not eligible for Medicaid; expanded
services to children  already  on Medicaid; continued expansion of
our  community health  center  network  and  funding  for  12  new
school-based health centers.  We  are  also  increasing  money for
childhood immunizations, school  breakfasts,  and  childhood  lead
poisoning prevention and  abatement  efforts.  The  Birth-to-Three
program, which prepares  disabled  infants and toddlers for fuller
lives, will be fully implemented.

    All told, our  children's  initiative represents $56.7 million
in redirected funding  invested  over two years -- money that will
give a generation  of  our  citizens  a  healthy  beginning  for a
fraction of the costs of neglect.

    The lessons of  prevention  aren't  exclusive to children. For
our senior citizens, I am proposing a $19 million dollar expansion
of our home  health  care  and assisted living services. This will
enable more of  our  senior  citizens to remain independent and in
the dignity of  their  homes,  rather  than be confined to nursing
homes at far greater costs to themselves and the state. We will be
able to serve  2,400  seniors  in their homes this coming year and
3,600 the following.

    Now, Ladies and  Gentlemen, you know this is the way we should
be going. Indeed,  every  other segment of our population that has
had some special  need  has  been mainstreamed into the community.
We're tearing down the institutions. Mansfield's gone. It's become
a matter of  history.  Why is it then that all the policies of the
Federal Government have  been forcing us to put Mom and Pop into a
nursing home rather  than  keeping  them at home? I would hope the
federal policy would  change,  but  I'm  not waiting for that. Our
fathers and mothers  are  going  to  be  at  home  if  it's at all
possible here in the State of Connecticut.

    We're  restructuring our  system  of  hospital  regulation  to
eliminate guaranteed price  increases,  and we're working with the
private sector to  develop  a  universal  electronic  billing  and
claims system for all health care transactions in Connecticut -- a
move that will  save  vast  sums  in the administrative costs that
some estimate make  up  27 cents of every health care dollar spent
in Connecticut.

    Now, I'm getting to something that I see there's been a little
bit of controversy  on.  I'm  sort  of  proud of what it is we put
together. Because when  all  of you, Republicans and Democrats and
one Independent were  running  around  there on the election scene
back in 1990,  everybody  was  taking the pledge - one percent for
the environment. Except for one candidate. I didn't agree to that.
I didn't know what the budget was going to be all about. It wasn't
a question of  not  liking  the  environment,  I didn't know if we
could afford to do what needed to be done.

    Well, I think  we've  all  seen the last two budgets and we've
seen how the environment is getting hit. This is a small state and
it's one of  the great aspects of our quality of life. So, in this
budget I'm going to redeem that pledge for all of us. There is, in
this budget, one  percent  of  the budget for the environment. The
quality of our  air,  water,  and  open  spaces is critical to our
economy and quality  of  life, yet our Department of Environmental
Protection has been  severely  underfunded  for  years  due to the
state's fiscal crises.  For  two  years,  I  have  come before the
bodies of this  government,  House  and  Senate,  to  ask that the
environmental monies collected  in  deposits  be put back into the
environment as the  law  intended.  The estimate being some $15 to
$20 million in  escheats.  For  two  years  that  request has been
denied. Yes, that caused us to look at the entire picture, and all
of a sudden  we  also  came  to the realization that the laws have
changed. But the  recycling laws, now mandatory in every community
in the State  of  Connecticut,  gave  us  the opportunity to go to
Bottle Bill II,  and to continue the progress that Connecticut has
made.

    To secure the necessary revenues to protect our environment, I
am proposing the  creation of a Connecticut Environment Fund which
will enable us  to reach our long sought after goal of one percent
of  the  state  budget  being  reserved  for  the  protection  and
enhancement of our environment.

    Over  a decade  ago,  Connecticut  was  one  of  the  nation's
trendsetters with passage  of  its bottle deposit law. It has been
an effective law  in  reducing  litter,  and  more  importantly in
establishing an environmental  ethic  that helped Connecticut give
birth to one  of  the  most  comprehensive  recycling  programs in
America.  Indeed, the  success  of  our  new  mandatory  recycling
program has made  deposit recycling duplicative and an unnecessary
burden. With comprehensive  recycling  programs  in  place  in all
municipalities, the redemption system is no longer needed.

    I am proposing  to  replace  the  five-cent  deposit  with  an
equivalent levy dedicated  to supporting the state's environmental
programs, including the  state  parks,  the  city  parks  and  the
open-space  acquisition.  Our  mandatory  recycling  program  will
handle bottles and  cans,  as  well  as  an  expansion  to include
plastic containers. The  Environment  Fund  will also provide $2.2
million annually to  towns  for anti-litter programs and recycling
initiatives.

    Remember this, Ladies  and  Gentlemen, the environment, is not
just a matter of bottles, it's the acquisition of open space. It's
the cleaning up  of  Long  Island  Sound. It's the cleaning of our
air. And we've not been doing the job that is owed to our children
in this regard. This will give us the money to achieve success.

    By providing a  long-needed  stable  source of funding for our
environmental  programs, the  Connecticut  Environment  Fund  will
enhance the quality  of life in this most densely populated of all
states of the Union.

    As our environment is essential to everyone's quality of life,
so are our  cities.  Once  a  thriving  and  central  force in our
community, cities today  are  rapidly  losing their business base,
while having to  bear a disproportionate burden of human problems.
While our state  is  among  the  nation's  wealthiest,  our  three
largest cities are among the nation's poorest.

    Those who say the cities are not their responsibility -- those
who would be  content  to  build  a high wall around each of them,
while turning their  eyes  to Connecticut's green hills -- fail to
understand the impact  that  cities  have  on  all of our lives. A
thriving  city means  jobs,  social  and  cultural  vitality,  and
revenue  to  keep   taxes  down.  A  city  devoid  of  hope  means
unemployment, dependency, substance  abuse,  crime,  poverty  -- a
rising bill of  social  and  financial despair that is paid for in
every household in  the  state.  The  bill  comes  due in terms of
higher taxes to  pay  the  costs of yet more prisons - the biggest
item in the budget, as far as any increase in personnel, are those
prisons.  It also  comes  due  for  the  life-long  care  of  more
drug-addicted,  low-birth-weight and  AIDS-infected  babies  -  as
Mario Cuomo cited  in  our discussion with the President the other
day, million dollar babies. That's the cost that we pay.

    Acknowledge it or  not,  we are all connected in this State --
three million people  in  this together -- and we have to learn to
help each other.  And  today, economics is as powerful an argument
for action as is doing what is moral.

    Last summer I  sent  Lieutenant  Governor Eunice Groark to the
cities to talk  with leaders, public and private, to find out what
the State could do to help them turn their cities around.

    Eunice reported back  that while each city had a unique set of
strengths and problems, a consensus emerged from all of the cities
that any successful plan had to merge economic development and job
creation  with  the  development  of  human  capital.  From  those
meetings come numerous  initiatives that we have incorporated into
this budget.

    To secure the safety of our city streets, in neighborhoods and
in business districts,  we  are  proposing the creation of a state
police unit that,  at local request, will work with city police in
targeted sweeps of  high-crime neighborhoods. Also recommended are
the funding of 80 additional local police officers to be allocated
to our largest  cities  and grants to establish police substations
in distressed neighborhoods.

    Now, I know  the  next  item is going to be controversial, but
that doesn't seem  to  be  a problem in this administration. And I
want to say  that I speak as a gun owner, as a sportsman, but most
importantly, as a  human being. I like you, like everybody in this
Hall, am absolutely  appalled at the slaughter taking place in our
cities. Accordingly, I  will be proposing legislation to allow any
municipality to prohibit,  by  ordinance, possession of any weapon
in public within  that  municipality.  No particular genius of the
idea. During this  last  election,  I saw that one of our towns, I
think it was  Wilton,  sat  there and had a local referendum as to
whether or not there should be whisky in the restaurants. Well, if
we can all  decide  whether  we want whisky in the restaurants, we
can sure as  hell  decide whether we want guns on our streets, and
that's what this  is  about.  The  time has come to stop tying the
hands of our  cities  in  their  very  real  life-and-death battle
against violence. If  the  countryside wants to shoot it up, so be
it. If the  cities  wants  to  get the guns off the streets, so be
that.

    Safe streets are  just  the  first step to urban job creation.
We're proposing to  expand our newly created Urbank, which targets
loans to small  business  development  in urban areas. Urbank will
now become a  state-sponsored, stand-alone bank. And for the first
time, advice and  counsel  will  sit  right next to lenders in the
storefront. By using  state  dollars  to leverage funds, more than
$875 million will  be  available to revitalize urban neighborhoods
and create decent jobs for neighborhood citizens.

    We are also  proposing  an  additional  $10  million  for  the
clean-up of industrial  contamination  at  key  urban locations to
make these sites available to potential employers. This is an item
that admittedly will  probably  grow  and  should,  and if we want
companies to move  into our cities then we as a State have to take
part of the  responsibility  for  the clean-up. Otherwise we won't
get them.

    I said I  would bring the best minds from all walks of life to
our administration. Their efforts are reflected in the plethora of
innovative programs that  fill  this  budget.  But nowhere is this
more apparent than  in  our  proposal  for  overhauling welfare as
developed by our Commissioner of Income Maintenance, Audrey Rowe.

    It's time we  stopped  penalizing people who try to work while
keeping their family  together. Under our proposal, people will be
allowed to keep  a  greater  portion  of  their  earnings, thereby
rewarding those who are able to find work. The limit on assets and
the value of  an  automobile will be raised to allow people to pay
for clothing for  work,  insurance, and a reliable vehicle, all of
which are important  to  finding and holding a job. We will remove
the requirement that  one  parent  be  absent  from  the  home for
children to receive  support  --  a  requirement  that  has worked
against maintaining intact  families.  These  proposals,  some  of
which require federal  approval,  represent  a  national model for
welfare reform.

    There has been  a  great  deal  of  hoopla  about the need for
gambling casinos to  come  and  save  our  state  and  cities from
economic ruin, and  I  want  to  say  something right now. I think
debate has been civil and I think the debate has been instructive.
But now it's  decision  time. It has been my position that casinos
are neither a  healthy nor a stabilizing influence on any economy.
Recently I concluded an agreement with the sovereign nation of the
Mashantucket Pequot Indians.  Under  the  terms  of the agreement,
Connecticut will receive  $30  million dollars between now and the
end of this current fiscal year, and $100 million or 25 percent of
the gross -  whichever is greater in each succeeding fiscal year -
on the condition  that  slot  machines  are  not  permitted in our
sovereign state. The  money,  in  toto, will be distributed to our
cities and towns as property tax relief through the PILOT program.
That means, for  example,  that  next year $5.9 million will go to
Bridgeport, $17.7 million  will  go to Hartford, and $13.5 million
to New Haven.  Every  town  in  the state will benefit. Manchester
will receive $1.2  million,  Ansonia  will  receive  $194,534, and
Union will receive $39,563 and no less than $5,000 for any town in
the State of Connecticut.

    I remind those  opposed  to this agreement that it remains the
prerogative of the  legislature  to  pass  legislation  permitting
gambling  casinos  to   come   into  our  state.  Should  they  be
successful, the $100 million annual payments from the Mashantucket
Pequot Nation to  the State of Connecticut will, of course, cease.
I've made my  choice.  The  legislature  is  free to make its own.
Additionally, the legislature  is  free  to  allocate  the  monies
received in any appropriate way it deems fit.

    I noticed somebody commented, "what do you mean $5,000?" Well,
you should know under your PILOT program - this is not my program,
this is your  program,  a  good program - there are two towns that
would get $100,  $200  or $300. So that's the reason for the floor
in those particular  instances.  But this is not the matter - this
disposition of money  -  that  I have any particular genius at. If
you have a better idea, let's do it.

    In my State  of the State Address, I called for the end of the
racial and economic isolation in our school system, which if it is
allowed to continue,  will  destroy  our  ability  as  a  state to
compete economically. And  today,  I repeat both the importance of
providing all of our children with a quality, integrated education
and the warning that if we fail to act the courts may do it for us
in a manner  more  costly and with less flexibility. I realize the
pressures that sit  on  each  one of us for even talking about the
issue. Yet, let's  make  it  clear  -  I will make it clear to the
State of Connecticut  - that this budget includes funding to begin
a process. That's  all we're discussing. Not a plan, not something
final in law, but a process to get the best ideas among all of our
citizens as to  what it is that we should do. All I am saying here
today is, pass  the process before some court orders busing. Allow
local communities to  decide  this  matter. It is that simple. The
only certainty is that a decision will be made. All I am asking is
let it be our decision.

    In the past  money  was  the  measurement  by which the public
official was adjudged  in  terms  of  commitment  to  an idea or a
constituency. Needless to  say it was always other people's money.
But as the  government's brain dried up from infrequent use so did
the treasury from  constant  use.  What  didn't disappear were the
problems and, in  the  absence of solution, they grew and they are
growing.

    In a time  of  slim  resources,  these  times,  the coinage of
public activism has to be the coinage of courage and smarts. That,
however, has always  been  the  New  Englander's stock in trade. I
hope  those  in  this  Hall  and  throughout  share  with  me  the
excitement of challenging  a  formidable  new  century. I hope you
share with me  the  disdain  for  continuing  to  spend  time  and
resources plagiarizing the past. We have our own history to write.

    The recession --  still  too  evident  in Connecticut today --
will not be  overcome for us by our economic competitors or by our
insolvent federal government.  There is no higher priority for the
monies of Connecticut  than the creation of jobs for the people of
Connecticut -- jobs  not  at  the  State  Capitol  or  within  the
government, but in  every  workplace  throughout our 169 towns and
cities.

    But this time  economic recovery has to encompass all who seek
work -- not  just those who are recently out of a job -- but those
who never had a chance for a job. And any recovery effort is to be
directed as much  to Connecticut small business as to its flagship
companies. Small business  does  not  have  the  cash  reserves to
weather  a long  downturn.  The  state  does.  Connecticut  should
guarantee credit and  capital  to  the  prime  job creators in our
society -- small business.

    Where there are  statutory  impediments  to  doing business in
Connecticut, let's clear  the minefields of regulation. The people
of Connecticut are  less  interested  in  special pleadings by the
institutions of the  marketplace  than  they are in being employed
within the marketplace.

    This Legislature and those that sat in seats before, made jobs
a priority long  before  the  most  recently  announced layoffs of
Connecticut's corporate giants. That foresight has given our state
the most all-encompassing  business incentives in the country. And
unlike the federal  government, we  have  the  money to fund those
incentives. If you  will  stay  the  course  with a truly balanced
budget and low  taxes  --  Connecticut gets back to work. Anything
less and we are at the mercy of every economic ill wind -- whether
from the aerospace industry or the insurance industry.

    Now, there's excitement  in  this  budget -- the excitement of
change and the  excitement  of beginnings. But the real essence of
what is proposed can only find meaning in the humanity whose lives
will forever change because of what we do.

    Urban initiatives, job  creation,  equality  of opportunity --
those are all words.

    Devoid of any meaning, but they become defined by a life. As I
travel around this  most  blessed of states, I see in the faces of
our children that innocence and trust, goodness and laughter which
is unique to  the  young  and  so  absent  in us. "Growing up" has
become  so  suddenly  "grown  up."  And  when  disappointment  has
overwhelmed  success,  then   innocence   becomes  the  wisdom  of
violence, trust is  hammered into cynicism, goodness looks foolish
and laughter is gone.

    From the daring  of  the Constitution to the sacrifices of our
elders nobody wished that on any of that on us. And with your help
we're not about ready to create it for Connecticut.

    My friends of  the  State  Legislature, simply put, you're the
best. Write the  budget  so!  A new century awaits. Thank you very
much.
