As the number of Connecticut residents testing positive for the novel coronavirus continues to increase, legislative leaders decided to postpone the legislative session until at least April 13. Eleven days ago legislative leaders shut down the state Capitol, Legislative Office Building, and Old State House, and expected to keep them closed to the public until March 30. On Monday they reassessed the situation and decided to keep the buildings closed another two weeks. The General Assembly must adjourn on May 6. Since they recessed on March 11, at least one member of the House of Representatives has tested positive, and Gov. Ned Lamont banned gatherings of more than 50 people. There are 151 lawmakers in the House and 36 in the Senate. Legislative leaders have been on daily conference calls with each other or their respective caucuses discussing the situation.
