Malloy Lays Out Transportation Vision In State Of The State
On a day that included musical performances, a parade through Hartford and the start of the legislative session, Connecticut’s Governor Dannel Malloy was sworn in to a second term Wednesday. The Democrat focused on transportation as he addressed lawmakers.Connecticut Supreme Court Justice Andrew McDonald administered Malloy’s oath of office. During a “State of the State” address Malloy proposed widening Interstate-95, expanding rail and bus service and a lock box in which money could only be used for transportation.
“Until that legislation is passed and signed I will veto any attempt to levy additional sources of new revenue for transportation,” said Malloy.
Facing a nearly $32 million deficit, Malloy says the budget he presents next month will include first steps for the transportation vision.
