HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Time is running out on this year’s session of the Connecticut General Assembly.

Monday marks the beginning of the last full week of the short three-month session, which is scheduled to adjourn on May 7. Lawmakers still have some major issues to tackle, including revisions to the state budget that begins on July 1.

Leaders of the legislature’s budget committees have been meeting privately with Gov. Dannel Malloy’s budget director, finalizing a compromise agreement for the full General Assembly to consider before the adjournment.

Other issues also remain, including legislation placing new restrictions on the public release of information from homicides. It’s part of an effort to protect victim privacy following the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. It’s questionable, however, whether that bill will come up for a vote.
