HARTFORD - Gov. Dannel Malloy is speaking out about how automatic federal spending cuts will impact Connecticut.

A total of $85 billion in forced cuts will kick in on Friday unless a deal is reached.

That includes $50 million in Connecticut.

The impact would mean the end of early childhood programming and the loss of about 120 teacher jobs.

Malloy was in Washington yesterday and said Congress needs to act fast.
