HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– Could a bipartisan budget be held up by a bipartisan honeymoon?

The House is set to hold an override vote on the Republican budget that passed the House and Senate last month. It would take 101 votes in the House to override the Governor’s veto. The override attempt is expected to fail.

The Governor has now said the next big deadline is Friday October 13th to get a bipartisan budget to his desk that he can sign. This deadline is because two lawmakers, one a Republican and one a Democrat are scheduled to be married the next day and leave for their honeymoon for the rest of the month.
