HARTFORD - The Legislature's Appropriations Committee this week approved $570 million in spending cuts for the fiscal year starting July 1, but that's about $300 million less than the projected deficit, and the package included no mention of state employee layoffs, prompting criticism from Republicans and Democratic Gov. Dan Malloy.
The Democratic-controlled committee passed the bill with a vote of 33-24. Why did this happen, and when and how will the rest of the gap be filled?
