    Monday marks the 17th day of the fiscal year and Connecticut is still without a budget.

    On Monday unions are expected to vote on concessions that will directly affect the state budget.

    Currently the state is facing a $5 billion deficit over the next two fiscal years, but union employees could help save $1.5 billion.

    Democrats postponed a budget vote until after the union employees finished voting on concessions.

    The concessions would mean unionized state employees have to pay more for their pension and health care.

    Until a budget is passed, Gov. Dannel Malloy will run the government using his limited executive authority.

    House Democrats plan to meet Tuesday for further budget discussions.
