HARTFORD (AP) - Legislative staff members are finalizing details of a tentative bipartisan budget framework reached by Connecticut legislative leaders.

Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy had been scheduled to meet Friday with Democratic lawmakers about the plan, but that’s been postponed to possibly sometime this weekend.

Malloy has expressed skepticism about tentative deal, saying Thursday he had not seen any documents yet. A House Democratic spokesman says legislative staff members have begun the process of drafting budget-related documents.
