NORWALK - State legislators are expected to meet tomorrow to introduce bipartisan legislation addressing the Newtown massacre.

Democratic and Republican caucuses will then meet separately to review the proposed bill before it is introduced to the General Assembly. From there, lawmakers hope to debate the bill and bring it to the floor for a vote on Wednesday.

The state bipartisan taskforce on Gun Violence Prevention and Student Safety has been meeting since January with an end goal of hashing out legislation that addresses the school shooting that killed 20 children and six faculty members.

A proposed bill is expected to address several initiatives that would aim to curb gun violence, ensure school security and recommend changes to the state's mental health system.
