HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Governor Dannel Malloy is set to meet with legislative leaders Monday afternoon to see if the House and Senate will be able to vote on a budget deal later this week.

There is very little optimism that a deal can be reached, and the Governor is preparing to run the state without a budget starting Saturday.

Meanwhile; the Governor has announced that he has signed the tentative concession deal with the leaders of all of the state labor unions. Rank and file union members are expected to vote on the big concession plan starting next month.

The Governor says there will be no union job layoffs while the rank and file voting takes place but he will have to make cuts in many programs as the state is on a path to overspend by as much as 200 million dollars a month without a state budget plan.
