The panel also discusses the state budget stalemate as politicians on both sides continue to battle for a budget.

Regarding a Republican budget proposed by Rep. Themis Klarides (R), Speaker of the House Joe Aresimowicz (D) stated, “Her budget is not only not balanced, it’s illegal and won’t pass the senate. So what would it be more than a political statement than from someone running for governor?”
