HARTFORD, Conn. – State budget negotiators worked through the weekend to try to come up with a package both sides could agree upon, while Republican lawmakers tried one last time to get a seat at the table.
Sen. Beth Bye (D-West Hartford) and Rep. Toni Walker (D-New Haven) said Friday that they remained optimistic a deal could be brokered before the end of the legislative session June 3.
“Things are going back and forth and progressing,” Bye said. “They’re just slow.”
She said there are tough decisions being made and “you want to take your time.”
Walker echoed her statements saying, “we’re going to have this down.”
