HARTFORD, Conn. – Democratic lawmakers are saying “no” to Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s proposed budget cut to honor guard detachments at veterans’ funerals.

Sen. President Martin Looney, D-New Haven, said Sunday in a press release that his caucus would look to restore the funding.

“Our veterans have served and sacrificed on our behalf,” Looney said. “As the budget moves through the process, we will work to restore funding or mitigate these cuts so that when our veterans are laid to rest they receive the honors they deserve.”
