Capitol News Roundup

The big news is that the legislature will be debating a budget tonight. The bill is similar to the proposal by Gov. Rell, though not in all ways. For instance, the estate tax is lowered, not eliminated. You can read the bill here.

The House has voted to borrow $950 million to cover the budget gap instead of letting the rainy day fund make up the difference. The fund will be used in 2010 and 2011.

Lastly, it looks like the Citizens’ Election Program will be allowed to continue while an appeal against a recent ruling is pending.
