CT Budget Still Unfinished.
hero_image_alt_text===A image of the word budget.
As we are getting towards the tail end of the 2018 legislative session, which ends on May 9, one very large question is beginning to loom over the Capitol. Will CT have a budget before the session ends? Although this is always the goal of the legislature, recently it has proven difficult to achieve. Last year’s state budget wasn’t finalized until months after session had ended.
There is some good news, however. The latest rumors at the Capitol suggest that the Democrats will soon release their proposed budget, which should be followed closely by the proposed Republican budget. This is when negotiations will begin. Major areas of interest for both parties will be to equalize Education Cost Sharing funding, and to restore municipal aide.
