Weather Postpones Bond Commission — For Third Time

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has yet to preside over his first meeting of the State Bond Commission.

The panel approves state borrowing and is headed by the governor. It was scheduled to meet on Wednesday, but the meeting has been postponed because of the latest winter storm. It’s the third time the meeting has been postponed due to weather.

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

Other projects include improvements at Connecticut State University campuses and the New Haven rail yard.

Another project would replacement a 30-year-old system that tracks prison inmates’ risk assessments, movements, violations and mental health status.
