State lawmakers are headed back to the capital for a special session. The two-year, $40 billion Democratic budget narrowly passed the General Assembly on the final day of the legislative session, and included controversial business tax increases. Southbury Republican state Senator Rob Kane thinks the budget should be vetoed by Governor Malloy.
Kane says Republicans and others have the votes to back the Governor up if he decides a complete overhaul is needed.
Kane says he will carefully watch the budget implementors, and go line by line, to ensure "there's no funny business taking place". He wants to make sure there's no pet projects added in at the last minute, considering how close the budget vote was and how late in the session it came.
Those bills will be acted on during a special session next week.
