Executive Order will Keep Lights on, for Now.

Governor M. Jodi Rell announced June 30th that she had signed an Executive Order to ensure the continued efficient operation of state government until a new, two-year state budget has been signed into law.

The action is necessary because July first marks the beginning of a new fiscal year for Connecticut and the General Assembly and the Governor have not successfully negotiated a new budget.

“First and foremost, people should rest assured that state government will continue to operate – services will be delivered; we will care for the vulnerable and the sick; public safety and public health will be protected,” Governor Rell said. “Negotiations between my Administration and legislative leaders from both the Republican and Democratic caucuses are continuing.”
