Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell has several problems with Democrat-written legislation intended to put the 2009-10/2010-11 budget the majority approved Sept. 1 to bed.
But a proposal I wrote about last week to eliminate a shellfish fee is not on her hit list.
In a letter issued today to legislative leaders, state Budget Director Robert Genuario outlined concerns his boss, who is out-of-state on vacation for the week, has with pending “implementer” bills.
He also added that, despite her veto of a revenue implementer passed by the Democrats during last week’s special session, Rell is okay with certain portions, including “elimination of the per-bushel fee for harvesting shellfish.”
Rell vetoed the revenue implementer because it hiked fees at the Department of Motor Vehicles .
