Estimates vary over the size of Connecticut's budget deficit. But agreement is widespread over the magnitude of the problem.
At 10 a.m. Wednesday, the General Assembly will meet in special session in Hartford to consider Gov. Dannel Malloy's deficit-mitigation plan aimed at eliminating a shortfall that ranges from $365 million to $415 million. In addition, the state faces a shortfall of $2.1 billion over the next two fiscal years.
