HARTFORD, Conn. – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy used his authority call the General Assembly into a special session next Tuesday, Dec. 8, even though there is no agreement yet on what to cut to close the $350 million budget deficit.

The call to the special session says lawmakers will convene a special session to enact “legislation reflecting our common goals necessary to eliminate the projected deficit.”

It also calls for the creation of a constitutional lockbox for special transportation funds and a list of tax categories it plans to modify.
