HARTFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Connecticut lawmakers are expected to vote on the latest version of a two-year Democratic budget proposal that received some last-minute changes after several major employers publicly balked at the tax increases.
Rank-and-file members of the House of Representatives were learning details of the new revisions Tuesday morning. The legislative session is scheduled to adjourn Wednesday at midnight.
Lawmakers had planned to vote Monday on the budget. But General Electric Co., Aetna Inc. and the Travelers Companies Inc. each issued rare public statements, criticizing the proposal. GE and Aetna both questioned whether they’d remain in Connecticut.
