A top Connecticut lawmaker said on Tuesday that the legislature is aiming to wrap up negotiations with the governor’s office on a bill to legalize marijuana by the week’s end and then take it up in the Senate “early next week.” Gov. Ned Lamont (D) also said on Monday that there’s consensus on a wide range of important issues in the reform legislation, but some details still need to be sorted out. Time is running out in the session, however, and the governor said he’s not necessarily interested in taking the issue up in a special session. To that end, negotiators will meet again on Tuesday, House Majority Leader Jason Rojas (D) said during a briefing. “I feel good about us coming to an agreement before the end of this week,” he said. “We met again last night and we’re going to meet again today and continue chipping away at some of the details. I think some of the larger issues, there is pretty broad consensus.”
