Both the House and Senate passed the bill along party line votes with few Democrats in opposition.

Malloy will sign the bill at Café Beauregard, where he ate lunch with Obama and his fellow New England governors before a speech on raising the minimum wage, according to the Courant.

Bills to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 are also working their way through state legislatures in Maryland, Massachusetts and Hawaii.
