Two Bristol lawmakers -- Republican Bill Hamzy and Democrat Chris Wright -- were among those who opposed the spending plan approved last night by the General Assembly.
The rest of the delegation -- Sen. Tom Colapietro and Reps. Frank Nicastro and Betty Boukus -- voted in favor of it.
I'm anxious to hear from Hamzy and Wright about their reasons for taking a stand against it. Wright, especially, made a gutsy - or stupid - move in opposing his party's leadership.
I haven't been able to reach Wright for comment.
