The Democratic leadership of the Connecticut General Assembly has called for direct talks with Gov. M. Jodi Rell over the $500 million fiscal 2010 budget deficit.

“We’re calling for a bipartisan ­leadership meeting immediately to be able to talk to the governor about it and move it forward,” said Derek Slap, spokesman for the Senate Democratic majority. “As soon as we finish this then we have the next fiscal year that we need to do budget adjustments for and the session ends the first week of May. We’re running out of time.”
