President Obama's call to postpone a vote on a military strike in Syria is giving members of Congress some breathing room. Matt Laslo reports from Washington on what some lawmakers from Connecticut and New York are saying about the issue.
Connecticut House Speaker Brendan Sharkey says legislation that would end municipal car taxes is on his agenda for next year's legislative session. Sharkey announced his plans for the 2014 legislative session in Hartford on Thursday.

The White House continues to urge holding the threat of a military attack over Syria's head as an inducement for President Assad to give up his chemical weapons.
