While some question just how far that power goes, for the moment the governor has made changes to education grants that help the state's poorest towns and hurt the most well off.
What does that mean? For Waterbury and Naugatuck, it means they will see no change in the amount of state education aid the are supposed to receive. Other towns, however, do not fare as well.
Plymouth, for example, loses more than $9.7 million; Watertown loses more than $9.4 million; Cheshire loses more than $8 million; Wolcott about $6.7 million, and Prospect about $5.3 million.
A chart with all of the numbers is available from CTMirror.org here. The story that accompanies the chart is worth your time.
