HARTFORD - The latest Legislative session has come to a close in Hartford.

Lawmakers began the session back in January, grappling with gun control reform and school safety in the wake of the Newtown shooting. The General Assembly also dealt with difficult cuts in a two-year budget plan.

Gov. Dannel Malloy said the final two months had been productive, as legislators approved foreclosure protections, a minimum wage hike and an energy strategy.

However, Republican leaders say little was done in a bipartisan manner and that they are not satisfied with some of the measures.
