HARTFORD — Facing a crushing deficit, Gov. Dan Malloy on Tuesday said there will be more layoffs of state employees.
The news comes after failed talks between the unions and the state’s pension office.
Malloy and other state officials said the total number of layoffs could be about 2,000.
Malloy says his administration is aiming to complete layoffs between June 9 and June 20 to save money in the 2017 fiscal year.
Senate President Martin Looney said the legislature on March 29 will vote on a plan to cover the current deficit, which is about $220 million.
