HARTFORD, Conn. – State Comptroller Kevin Lembo is siding with Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s budget office when it comes to estimating the size of the 2015 budget deficit.

That’s far less than the $170.9 million deficit projected last week by the legislature’s nonpartisan Office of Fiscal Analysis.
The difference between the two estimates are on the spending side of the equation.
