HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Kevin Sullivan, a former president of the Connecticut Senate who became lieutenant governor after former Gov. John G. Rowland resigned, is returning to state government.

Gov.-elect Dan Malloy announced Wednesday that he’s chosen Sullivan to be commissioner of the Department of Revenue Services, the state’s tax collection agency.

Sullivan is currently president of The Children’s Museum in his hometown of West Hartford.

Given the state’s dire need for more revenue, Malloy says he wants the new commissioner to aggressively pursue those not paying their required taxes. But he says he’ll also ask Sullivan to help with job creation.

Malloy, who takes office Jan. 5, says his administration is also looking at ways to tax Internet sales.
