  • Connecticut's Fixed Costs (INFOGRAPHIC)

    Fixed costs are an increasing portion of the Connecticut state budget, and are expenditures the State is obligated to make. In fiscal year 2017, almost half ($8.68 billion) of Connecticut's total General Fund expenditures were categorized as "fixed costs." As the State's fixed costs are increasing, the amount of money available for the discretionary — or non-fixed — portion of Connecticut's General Fund is shrinking. This infographic details the items that make up Connecticut's fixed costs, and how they have grown over the years.
