Weather postpones leadership talks on Newtown bill

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) The winter storm is delaying legislative leadership talks on a possible bipartisan bill addressing the deadly mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

Democratic and Republican leaders had planned to hold a third session of closed-door talks Friday. Two Democratic staff members confirmed those discussions are expected to resume on Monday.

On Thursday, leaders said they remained optimistic about reaching a bipartisan agreement, saying they were continuing to make progress. There have been some questions as to whether a bipartisan deal can be reached considering some Democratic and Republican lawmakers differ over whether to expand the state's assault weapons ban and whether to ban high-capacity ammunition magazines.

Meanwhile, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's Sandy Hook Advisory Commission continued to meet on Friday. Members heard from emergency management experts.
