HARTFORD, Connecticut — Members of the General Assembly's budget-writing committee will be meeting to vote on the legislature's response to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's proposed spending plan.

The Democratic controlled Appropriations Committee was scheduled to vote Monday on a two-year spending proposal. The committee faces a Thursday deadline to vote out bills. Meanwhile, the Finance Revenue and Bonding Committee has until May 1 to approve a revenue package.

Ultimately those proposals will become the basis for negotiations with Malloy, as both sides try to craft a final compromise two-year budget.

On Friday, the minority Republicans offered their own budget for consideration. The two-year, approximately $40 billion plan replenished many of Malloy's proposed spending cuts to human services and other programs. It relied on state employee givebacks to generate much of the needed revenue.
