That probably explains it. The whole "too many cooks" thing. It gets to the point where the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. :lol:

Is it possible they could just re-add any money cut during year 1 or year 2 within year 3 and back up to 250 million?

 

IF it ends up, in my view, that they truly reduce the XL all that money while no private partners emerge then......THEN I start to worry they've slithered snake like into typical CT kick the ball down the road approach "just enough to save face and maintain UConn as is" with no improvement that attracts NHL in **ture.

Some developments that took place at the Capitol Building late today are not very promising. As the push for Bridgeport starts to build more momentum in the halls of the Capitol Building, there is a growing reluctance from downstate representatives in favoring big investments in the XL Center. Due to the complex nature of the XL Center capital improvement spending, legal counsel was brought in during recent days to give *****istance to the General *****embly members and the XL Center capital improvement building bill has now been sent out for more research and to the Fiscal Analysis office. There is less than a month remaining in this legislative term, the momentum that was present a month ago is no longer there. A terrible time for the Courant to make a mistake on the front page about the XL Center, and then the Courant made another huge mistake over the weekend regarding the Church and their downsizing plans, with the Courant running a front-page correction to the fix that mistake the following day.

 

The push for more research and analysis was made late in the day on Monday, today.

I just heard from an old coworker that it will take at least 2 weeks for the analysis to come back, meaning that the XL Center improvement bill will be stalled for at least two weeks, and then only be on the table for two weeks before the session ends, unless there is a term extension nearing the middle of June.

 

The northern casino keeps moving along, and looks more certain now than it did two months ago. However, less promising is the XL Center, as Bridgeport momentum has been building for 2 weeks now.
