The House session started at noon Tuesday. Democratic House Speaker House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz expected the override effort to fail. Democratic leadership said the GOP had its chance to override and didn’t take it.
The Democratic Governor rejected the Republican-backed budget, citing changes to the state pension system and cuts to higher education. Connecticut is the last state in the nation without a budget in place for the fiscal year that began July 1. Connecticut faces a projected $3.5 billion deficit over the next two fiscal years.
Cities and towns could face major cuts in state funding including education aid this month under a Malloy executive order that would take effect if a budget isn't approved.
