The reopening plan is contingent on COVID-19 infection rates remaining stable, the governor said.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Democratic legislative leaders announced a tentative budget deal that postpones tax relief for teachers and consumers, repeals the launch of keno and relies on tens of millions of dollars in questionable savings assumptions.
Keno, the unwanted child of Connecticut politics, vilified by gambling opponents and publicly defended by no major political figure, improbably remains alive as the General Assembly begins the last two weeks of the 2014 session.
The majority leaders of the Connecticut General Assembly Wednesday said they support repealing Keno, a bingo-style gambling game that lawmakers approved last year when facing a deficit to generate new revenue.
