HARTFORD - Lawmakers reached an agreement today at the state capitol on a major issue in time for the end of this year's legislative session.

The "implementer bill" puts the budget that lawmakers voted on over the weekend into practice. Democrats and Republicans say reaching an agreement means they will not have to come back for a special session to pass the implementer.

Leaders say they agreed to allow for minimal debate on the House and Senate floors during the final hours of this session, which will enable them to pass other bills.

Other legislative highlights from this year include raising the minimum wage and investing in early childhood education.
