HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut lawmakers are planning to resurrect some of the eight bills Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy vetoed, but not until next year.

The Democratic-controlled General Assembly declined to override any of the vetoes during Monday’s sparsely attended veto session at the state Capitol.

House Majority Leader Joe Aresimowicz (ehr-eh-SIM’-oh-wits) said he expects several will be retooled for consideration in the next regular legislative session, which begins in January. For example, Aresimowicz said he expects some changes will be made to a bill that clarifies legal liabilities for homeowners and neighbors when a tree limb falls.

Rep. Mary Mushinsky, co-chairman of the legislature’s Program Review and Investigations Committee, said lawmakers next year can fix a “technical problem” Malloy found in another bill concerning reporting requirements for the state’s health insurance exchange.
