GOP Lawmakers Call For Special Session Expansion

HARTFORD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) – A special legislative session planned for next Wednesday, to approve a tentative agreement to keep Lockheed Martin’s Sikorsky headquarters in Connecticut, may include other items.

Republican legislative leaders have written Governor Dannel P. Malloy, asking that the call of next week’s special session be expanded to include items such as voting on state employee union contracts, capping state borrowing, and reducing the number of legislative committees.

Governor Malloy has thus far refused to agree to the request, saying the Sikorsky agreement is the only item that should be an the agenda, and the rest can wait until the 2017 session.  “The best message we can give to the business community is that we’re serious about business,” he said. “Not serious about politics.”
