Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy presented a two-year $40.6 billion budget proposal to lawmakers at the state Capitol in Hartford on Wednesday. The plan calls for $1.5 billion in state employee givebacks and shifts about $400 million in teacher pension costs to cities and towns. It also includes about $200 million in new taxes.
On Wednesday Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy nominated Gregory D’Auria, a veteran attorney in the state's Attorney General’s Office to serve as an associate justice on the Connecticut Supreme Court.
Connecticut officials are now projecting that the state will end this fiscal year with a $23 million surplus, as stated in a letter sent by Governor Dannel Malloy’s budget director to the state comptroller on Friday.
