Connecticut governor John Rowland issued his second veto of the budget on June 5, 2003, forcing lawmakers into special session to craft next year's budget before the close of the fiscal year. In addition, Rowland promoted his own $13.5 billion budget proposal, which was introduced in March 2003, saying that his budget was �fair and balanced� and adequately addresses the needs of Connecticut residents. Budget negotiating sessions will begin on June 6 and a vote is expected within the next two weeks.
