Senate Expected to Vote on Budget Today

The legislative session ended last week without passing a budget, but the state Senate is expected to vote on it today,

The state deals with a $960 million shortfall and not all of the details about the new budget plan have been made public.

However, it does include $830 million in cuts, layoffs for 2,000 state employees and $50 million in cuts to municipal aid.

Because of this, city and town leaders are concerned they might have to raise taxes to offset the cuts to their budget.

The Senate is expected to vote today and the House is expected to vote tomorrow.
