HARTFORD, Conn. – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said if Republican lawmakers have suggestions about where to cut then they should scribble them on the back of an envelope and hand them to him.

“If they [Republicans] can have a conversation with you about coming to the table, they can have a conversation with you about their ideas,” Malloy told a group of reporters Wednesday.

In the minority, Republicans like Sen. Len Fasano, R-North Haven, has told Malloy they’re willing to come to the table to help him erase the deficit, which he has limited power to do on his own. Malloy can rescind up to 5 percent of any line item and 3 percent of any fund on his own without seeking legislative approval.

    Imagine what the legacy for Governor if he resolved the decades old CT budget morass. With a continuing super-majority Legislature there’s no excuses anymore. More talent in the budget office might be helpful.
