Your 2016 Presidential Vote Counts

“Under GOP rules, Trump is the only one who can take himself out of the race. The only provision that exists for replacing a candidate nominated at the party convention is a candidate’s death or his refusal to run.

Swing Batter Batter – Vetoed by Malloy

Swing You're Out

 

Over the past few weeks, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has signed 124 bills and vetoed six. He also used his constitutional authority Thursday to veto $22.5 million from the $19.76 billion state budget.

The Department of Labor, according to Malloy’s veto message, conducted 95 audits of athletic organizations over the last three years and found 54 percent of coaches and referees were properly classified as independent contractors and 46 percent were misclassified.

Malloy suggested these organizations use the Labor Department to help classify employees and avoid “overly broad exemptions.”

The bill had unanimously passed the Senate and passed the House on a 138-7 vote.
