HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Pay raises for at least 1,950 non-union state managers are being canceled because of Connecticut’s continued budget problems.

Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s chief of staff and budget director said in a letter Monday to state agency heads that “the state’s fiscal situation has deteriorated significantly” and the state cannot move forward with managerial raises when so many state programs will be reduced and “many state jobs are likely to be eliminated.”

The state Supreme Court will determine whether to cancel raises for about 200 judicial branch managers. Legislative branch employees already received increases last July.

Raises for 1,950 executive branch managers were slated to take effect this week. They’ve already been delayed twice this fiscal year.

The new fiscal year beginning July 1 could be $900 million in deficit.
