Advocates for different causes are hoping to get a second chance at passing a bill or securing funding in the new state budget as the Connecticut General Assembly prepares to return to the Capitol for a short special session. The Senate is scheduled to convene Tuesday and the House of Representatives on Wednesday. While legalizing adult recreational use of marijuana and finalizing the budget have been the top priorities, there's been a push for other bills such as one that would cap and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and another that would help people who are terminally ill to die.
