Connecticut continues to have no consensus on a tax and spending plan.  New Milford Senator Craig Miner says the process didn't begin a month ago, but one that's been going on for months.

 

He acknowledged that the budget vetoed by the Governor wasn't perfect.  But he says that's because the deficit is a big one, and continues to grow.  Miner says a floor from which lawmakers could move forward was needed.

 

Miner says they intended not to have a ripple effect of a significant change at the state level become an uncontrollable problem at the municipal level.  He says there will have to be small changes made to organized labor and teacher pensions.
