This article reports on the expected closure of budget negotiations in Connecticut as of June 4, 2003. The Democratic-controlled General Assembly's budget was estimated at 27.5 billion dollars for the coming two years. The legislature's budget increased taxes by about 273 million dollars. Governor John Rowland met with officials in the state Office of Policy and Management to go over early figures released by the legislature and to discuss the possibility of yet another veto, in which case lawmakers would return for additional sessions until the two branches can reach a consensus.
