Check out the loaded poll question posted by the Hartford Courant about the budget.
The House passed the budget last night, so it goes on to the Senate. Here's the roll call if you're interested. It should be done soon. The only people who aren't happy? Every Republican in the capitol who isn't the governor. They, however, are becoming more and more irrelevant. More on that later.
The House and Senate Democrats aren't too far apart on campaign finance reform, though some harsh words were exchanged. I expect that something will be done before the session ends.
