Connecticut’s special legislative session ended last night with a budget deal. But, believe it or not - this still might not be over.
Governor Dannel Malloy and state lawmakers agreed on a package to plug the last $1.6 billion dollar hole in the state budget with up to 6500 layoffs in the state workforce.
It’s something neither Malloy, nor the Democratically controlled legislature...nor union leadership wanted to see happen. But the union vote to reject a concessions package has seemingly sealed the deal.
