Connecticut Lawmakers End Regular Legislative Session

Connecticut lawmakers wrapped up the regular session overnight.

In the final hours of the session, the General Assembly passed a bill requiring people to renew their driver licenses every eight years instead of six.

They also approved a bill that updates police pursuit laws, including prohibiting police from shooting into or at fleeing vehicles.

Legislation on where and how to expand gambling in the state did not pass. 

The hotly debated issue of legalizing and regulating recreational marijuana also failed.

Lawmakers are planning to hold a special session later this summer to take up electronic tolls.
