Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy announced on Twitter that he would issue an executive order later today prohibiting state-subsidized travel to Indiana. In practice, this would prevent state employees from taking trips to Indiana on the taxpayer’s dime, even for official government business.
If any taxpayers in Connecticut want to thank the Governor of Indiana for blocking of a section of the government trough, I’m sure it would be appareciated.
If Connecticut is going to prohibit government-subsidized travel to RFRA states, perhaps they should respond in kind and prohibit travel to Connecticut? (A libertarian can dream, I suppose.)
