HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel P. Malloy will finally have the opportunity to preside over his first meeting of the state Bond Commission.

The panel that approves state borrowing and is headed by the governor, is scheduled to meet Wednesday. An earlier meeting was postponed because of a snow storm.

The agenda includes proposed borrowing for 34 capital projects, including $81.6 million to buy 38 commuter rail cars for the Metro-North Railroad New Haven line.

Other projects include replacement of a 30-year-old inmate system that tracks inmates’ risk assessments, movements, violations and mental health status; and a new “Criminal Justice Information System” that will allow police, court officials, prosecutors, probation and parole officers, and prison administrators to create a centralized database on offenders.
