Some state lawmakers are rejecting Governor Cuomo’s budget proposal to extend a tax on millionaires. The spending plan was outlined to some lawmakers at a lunch at the governor’s mansion, but won’t be available to the public until later Tuesday.
Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy spoke about his plan to change the formula for state aid to municipalities with the leaders of small towns on Wednesday. The governor says the plan will ensure that more state money goes to the towns in need.
Connecticut Comptroller Kevin Lembo says he expects negotiations between the state’s employee labor unions and the Malloy administration will soon produce an agreement that could help the state reduce its pension obligations.
