Connecticut Gov. M. Jodi Rell said she will allow the $37.57 billion budget passed early yesterday by the Democratic-led General Assembly to become law without her signature.

"I will not veto the entire budget," the Republican Rell said in a press release. "However, I will not sign it into law, because I do not believe in this budget. I do not want, by my signature, to put a stamp of approval on their spending, their inability to make cuts or their levels of borrowing, revenues and taxes."
