As state senators debate Governor Dannel Malloy’s $40.1 billion budget through Monday night and into early Tuesday morning, they may spend some time discussing a controversial amendment posed by newly elected state Sen. Len Suzio (R-Meriden) that was the focus of a Democratic press conference Monday.

Amendment LCO 5775, which Suzio and state Sen. Michael McLachlen (R-Danbury) hope to propose during the senate budget proceedings, would cut $2 million from state funding for Planned Parenthood over the next two years.
