HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel Malloy is kicking off a daylong economic summit to generate ideas for reinventing Connecticut’s economy and shape the agenda of this month’s special legislative session on jobs.

The event is scheduled for Thursday at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford. Experts from academia and the private and public sectors are expected to attend.

It follows Malloy’s three-month-long jobs tour, where he held more than 70 meetings with businesses and other organizations to discuss ways to improve Connecticut’s economy.

The summit’s headline speakers include Steve Cochrane from Moody’s Analytics and Timothy “Scott” Case, CEO of Startup America Partnership and the founding chief technology officer of Priceline.com. Mark Zandi of Moody’s had previously been scheduled to attend.

Lawmakers return to the state Capitol for the Aug. 26 special session.
