Talks between state legislators and the Commissioner of Economic Development have not materialized any offers for the Bristol Press and New Britain Herald.

According to the Courant, nine companies have contacted the officials on the two failing newspapers but no offers have been given.  The meetings between the officials were aimed at bringing buyers forward.  Now that several have expressed interest in the two papers the state will most likely step away from the negotiating table.
