Capitol Report: Still without a budget as new deadline approaches

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — When we last left you, the legislature was headed for an Oct. 10 showdown for a potential override of Governor Malloy’s veto.

However, early last week, Berlin High School Football Coach and Speaker of the House Joe Aresimowicz snapped the ball early, calling for an override session after feeling confident that Gov. Malloy’s veto would be upheld.

Before the House could vote on an override, someone who voted for the Republican budget had to make a motion to reconsider the bill. However, no one spoke up.

Now, the goal is to have a new budget in place by Oct. 13.
