Now What?

A ten month budget stand off is over and Governor Malloy has reluctantly signed a new budget into law, but the question remains what are the long-term implications of the new spending plan?

In three months, if not sooner, lawmakers will be back at the capitol to make further adjustments to the budget. 2018 is an election year making it more difficult to reach agreement if there are any issues in dispute, or if the budget falls into deficit.

Meanwhile, the Connecticut business community is closely considering the details of the new budget to see if it provides policy clarity for the future.
