Republicans protest State union contracts

Connecticut Democrats reject Republican proposal to require actual votes on government employee union contracts, do elect an AFL - CIO employee as Speaker of the House, and push $13.8 billion in unfunded pension costs onto the next generation.

Such contracts are deemed approved if, within 30 days of their filing with the House and Senate clerk, they have not been rejected by either chamber. The pension restructuring deal was filed Wednesday with the clerks, and unless it is voted down in the House or Senate, it would be deemed ratified in early February.

All that on just their first day back in Hartford - imagine the good they'll have accomplished by the time this session ends
