Rell begins union discussions

Unlike some of Cheshire's elected officials, Gov. Rell is at least speaking with unions about economic realities:

Gov. M. Jodi Rell said Monday that she is sending a lawyer to talk with state employee unions this week about potential cost savings to help reduce Connecticut's mounting budget deficit...

The governor told the business group that government today is bigger than taxpayers' ability to pay for it. She said more spending cuts are needed, and state officials must rethink how government works in an economic crisis.
