Leaders Continue Working Toward Bipartisan Budget Deal

Legislative leaders met for about six hours Monday in a continuing effort to fashion a bipartisan budget proposal that will end the budget stalemate that’s lingered for more than 100 days. They haven’t reached a deal yet, but staff on both sides said there’s been movement from both parties. What’s not clear yet is if Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and rank-and-file lawmakers will be able to stomach any deal that’s reached. Malloy has said the two sides need to get a budget together before Friday if they want to get a budget passed before Nov. 1.
