Campaign season is underway in Connecticut. This hour, we speak with incumbent Gov. Ned Lamont about his first term and his reelection campaign.

The recently signed state budget delivers $660 million in tax cuts, but per The CT Mirror reporter Keith Phaneuf, roughly $364 million or 55% of that tax relief “expires after this fiscal year.” We'll discuss the budget, COVID-19, affordable housing, workforce shortages and more. Lamont also responds to the mass shooting in Buffalo, New York, and relays the latest on the state’s Hate Crimes Advisory Council.

Plus, we take your questions for the governor.
