The Connecticut legislative session has ended, but the fallout from the last minute budget agreement is just beginning.

Lawmakers passed a two-year, $40 billion state budget. The budget raised a range of taxes by about $2 billion over two years in order to help offset a projected deficit of more than $2 billion over that time.

WSHU's Tom Kuser spoke with AP Capitol Reporter Susan Haigh to help sort through the state budget agreement and other pieces of legislation lawmakers dealt with before the deadline.

Tom has been with WSHU since 1987, after spending 15 years at college and commercial radio and television stations. He became Program Director in 1999, and has been local host of NPR’s Morning Edition since 2000.
