HARTFORD - A budget plan backed by state Democrats includes $370 million more in spending than a proposal from Gov. Jodi Rell (R-Conn.).
The Democrats' plan also proposes cutting 390 jobs at the state Capitol.
Democrats say their plan would generate more revenue to cover the additional spending.
Rell blasted the Democrats' plan, saying it is "Out of balance, out of proportion - and out of touch with reality."
