State Representative Joe Gresko, (D)
121st Connecticut House District
Recently, Connecticut transferred more than $1.3 billion to pay down its long-term pension debt.
Since the legislature enacted the state’s “fiscal guardrails” in 2017, more than $7 billion in excess contributions captured from volatile revenue sources have been made to pay down pension debt, resulting in far-reaching savings for Connecticut taxpayers.
Future generations will save more than $600 million per year over the next 25 years while supporting retirement benefits for teachers, state troopers, nurses, correction officers, and more.
