Gov. Lamont extended his emergency powers by five months, but Republican lawmakers pushed back earlier this week.
Lamont announced the extension during a news conference Monday, but top Republicans said moments later that they never agreed to it.
His powers previously would've ended on Sept. 9. Connecticut has COVID-19 rules for schools, restaurants, bars and even face masks - all through executive orders.
