No Go for the Clean Water Fund -- Yet

The Connecticut State Legislature passed a budget yesterday but Leah Schmalz of Connecticut Fund for the Environment/Save the Sound tells me that legislators haven't yet approved the bonding package that includes $50 million for the state's Clean Water Fund (much of which would go toward nitrogen removal projects at Long Island Sound sewage treatment plants). Without it, the Sound cleanup will come to a halt, for the time being at least. Here's the most recent post about it, and it has links to earlier posts.
