HARTFORD, Conn. –Through Tuesday the House had sent 134 of its bills to the Senate and the Senate had sent more than 98 bills to the House, but the Senate only forwarded two of those bills to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy. Meanwhile, the House has forwarded 11 bills to Malloy.

That means a total of 13 bills have passed both chambers.

The two differed early this year on a bill that would have banned genetically-modified grass.
