Override session...

It looks like the General Assembly will reconvene in special session next Monday, at which point it may - or may not - take a look at potentially voting to override some of Gov. M. Jodi Rell's vetos.

But of more local interest, it also looks like that will be the day both chambers will vote on the bond package. The final details of the state's borrowing plan for the next two years are still be worked on, but it does appear there is widespread support for inclusion of $40 million in infrastructure improvements at the Groton sub base. Both the House and Senate passed legislation in the closing days of the session to authorized $50 million at the base - a provision that was gutted from the budget during negotiations after the session ended.
