HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – The legislature’s budget-writing committee has suddenly halted plans to vote on an alternative to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s budget proposal. Democratic leaders of the Appropriations Committee made a surprise announcement Tuesday that they were adjourning without taking the scheduled vote, expressing disappointment there wasn’t bipartisan support for the two-year, $40.3 billion proposal.  It’s unclear whether a spending bill can be passed before the committee’s Thursday deadline, or whether a separate tax bill will be voted on as well.  Democrats say they didn’t know until recently that Republicans weren’t supporting the spending bill and instead planned to release their own budget. But the GOP leaders say they’ve been upfront for weeks about their budget proposal, expressing concerns with proposed Democratic tax increases. Democrats hold a slim majority on the committee.
