Much-Postponed Bond Commission Meets

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is set to preside over his first meeting of the Connecticut Bond Commission, the panel that approves state borrowing.

The meeting, which had been postponed several times due to weather, is scheduled for Thursday.

The agenda includes 40 items. They range from improvements at state parks to the purchase of 38 commuter rail cars for the Metro-North New Haven Line.

Malloy is also scheduled to meet with state agency heads on Thursday. Both his banking and child welfare commissioners will update him on issues affecting their agencies. The governor plans to hold such meetings every month.

Malloy is also holding his second town hall meeting to discuss his proposed two-year, $40 billion budget and the state’s fiscal woes. This meeting will be held in Torrington.
