You can see their plan here:
The committee voted 33-24 to approve its plan. Voting in favor from the local legislative delegation were Sen. Joan Hartley, R-Waterbury, and Sen. Dante Bartolomeo, R-Cheshire. Voting against were Sen. Rob Kane, R-Watertown, Sen. Joe Markley, R-Southington, and Rep. Arthur O'Neill, R-Southbury.
The Democrat-controlled committee also managed to upset Gov. Dannal P. Malloy in the process, because they dared to use funding for his transportation projects as part of their proposed fix. So much for a lockbox.
That led Malloy to announce he plans to take the unusual step of issuing his own revised budget plan next week.
He made that announcement even before the Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee issued its budget fix plan, which officially is due by today. That plan likely won't make him any happier than the Appropriations Committee plan, because it includes new taxes and fees -- including an 8.75% surcharge on Fantasy Sports and imposing a sales tax fee on retailers.
The Finance committee voted 30-21 along party lines to approve its fix.
