Connecticut lawmakers close out unusual session, pass budget

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut lawmakers have closed out the legislative session, with the Senate passing a two-year, $46.3 billion state budget deal with no new taxes. Wednesday's vote, which comes after the bill passed the House of Representatives with bipartisan support, occurred on the final day of the regular legislative session that ends at midnight. While that's expected to pass in time, a bill legalizing adult recreational marijuana will not. House Speaker Matt Ritter said Democratic leaders plan to call a special session in the next week or two to vote on that and other bills. The move comes after Republicans threatened to debate the bill until midnight.
