Connecticut legislature to hold special session on jobs
HARTFORD, Connecticut: Governor Dan Malloy filed an executive order with the Secretary of State's office on October 13 calling for a special session of the state legislature to focus on jobs and economic development. It will begin at 11 a.m. on October 26.
The executive order states the reason for the session is to enact legislation that “improves job creation, promotes economic growth, creates a better business climate, develops a sustainable and competitive workforce, and ensures that Connecticut becomes an international center for bioscience research.”
The session is the culmination of a jobs tour Malloy began in June, making some 70 stops throughout the state to gather ideas on how to create jobs. He is scheduled to release a bipartisan package of these ideas soon, possibly this week.
