Pre-gaming the State Legislative Session
A new legislative session begins in Hartford today
A new legislative session begins in Hartford today - and lawmakers will have a lot on their plates as usual.
But the standard-issue partisan fights over spending, revenues may well be eased - at least early in the session - by the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shootings.
Governor Dannel Malloy’s State of the State address, the traditional kickoff of the session, will likely focus on the state’s attempt to come back emotionally from the tragedy.
But, it means we’ll also hear a lot about gun control and school safety over the next few months.
Today, where we live, we kick off a day full of coverage from the capitol, as your state lawmakers return to Hartford.
