From Susan Haigh, Associated Press:
(Governor Dan) Malloy has until Wednesday to sign or veto the budget. If he does ultimately sign it into law, the bare-bones executive order the governor has used to approve limited spending without a state budget will be scrapped. Delayed state payments to cities and towns are expected to immediately start flowing again, likely heading off school closures, teacher layoffs, credit rating downgrades and more program cuts.
If Malloy vetoes the plan, state lawmakers will have to return to the state Capitol for a veto override session. They would need 101 votes in the House and 24 in the Senate to overturn the governor’s action. On Thursday, the budget bill cleared the Senate by a vote of 33-3 and the House by a vote of 126-23.
