News Junkie: What else was in the budget?

HARTFORD, Conn. — Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has five days to decide whether he’s going to sign or veto the bipartisan budget compromise, which passed Thursday 33-3 in the Senate and 126-23 in the House.

Malloy is reviewing the budget documents, according to his staff. The full budget document wasn’t posted online until around 11 p.m. Wednesday, which is around the same time the Senate began debate.

The 881-page document includes a lot of information, much of which has already been reported or debated. However, there’s a lot of little changes in the budget that haven’t necessarily been reported yet and weren’t part of Thursday’s debate.

For example, the budget will prohibit for two years a requirement that 1 percent of the bond proceeds for state building projects be used to commission artwork.
