Legislative Leaders, Malloy Meet And Aim For June 29

Legislative leaders and Gov. Dannel P. Malloy met for about an hour Wednesday to discuss how to move forward with a two-year budget that closes a $5.1 billion deficit. But they won’t know until after tomorrow whether they will convene June 29 to pass a two-year budget or a continuing resolution. The House needs 76 votes to pass a budget and there are 79 Democratic members and 72 Republicans. The Senate is evenly divided between the two parties and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman is the tie breaking vote.
