Connecticut lawmakers, in night of normalcy, wrap up session

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut lawmakers have wrapped up the 2022 legislative session. They spent the final hours advancing bills to Gov. Ned Lamont that address juvenile crime, make changes to the state's new recreational cannabis law and recognize Juneteenth Independence Day as an official state holiday. While hundreds of bills were expected to die on the vine, per usual, many of the major bills of the three-month-long session have already cleared the Democratic controlled General Assembly. The list includes one of the first abortion rights bills to pass in years and a revised one-year $24.2 billion budget that benefits from the state's best fiscal figures in decades.
