Malloy Says He May Need GOP Votes to Pass a Budget

By Mark Pazniokas

www.ctmirror.org

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who intends to revise his budget proposal next week to address falling income-tax receipts, today expressed doubt about the prospects of passing a budget in the closely divided General Assembly without the votes of some Republicans.

The Democratic governor is tentatively scheduled to meet next week with legislative leaders of both parties, who are trying to find a way to balance the budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1 and will shape the fight for control of the General Assembly in 2018.

“I’m ready, willing and able to speak with the leaders. The leaders are going to have to play a leadership role,” Malloy said. “Republicans are probably going to have to vote for a budget for the first time in 10 years. So, there’s a lot of work to be done.”

The expectation of GOP votes likely reflects Malloy’s belief that passage of a budget that relies more on deep spending cuts than tax increases is not possible with only Democratic votes.

Police Say ‘Known Criminal’ Arrested for Burglary

Officers arrested a Norwalk man described as a known criminal on burglary and larceny charges involving an incident at a Weston Road address in October, police said today.

Ernest Bailey: bond set at $50,000. Westport Police photo

Ernest Bailey, 49, was arrested Monday at the Norwalk Police Department where he was already in custody for a different crime. He had his bond set at $50,000 and was released back into the custody of the court, according to Lt. David Farrell.

The charges date back to October when the victim said she was unable to locate her purse, and her bank advised her of fraudulent activity on her account, Farrell said.

“The officer also followed up with People’s Bank in Stamford and learned that the suspect withdrew $300 on the victim’s account,” Farrell said. “The People’s Bank teller recognized the male as Ernest Bailey, a known criminal.”
