The state would spend $200 million over 10 years to expand statewide prekindergarten programs under an ambitious plan that leaders of the Connecticut legislature announced Wednesday.
Connecticut politicians who may be challenged in this year's election for supporting stricter weapons laws in the wake of the Newtown school massacre received a pledge of support Thursday from gun control advocates.
"I looked at the bottom line and it looks like they're 99.6 or .7 percent close to where the governor's level of spending is," said Senate President Donald E. Williams Jr., D-Brooklyn. "On the face of it, it doesn't appear that there's any material difference between what the Republicans are proposing, in terms of the amount of spending, and what the governor is proposing."
While not a fan of keno, Williams said the revenue is still in the budget that's being negotiated behind closed doors.
