Hartford – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy held off today from releasing details of a bipartisan jobs creation package, saying that he is waiting for Republican and Democratic lawmakers to brief their own members of the proposals.
“They can’t make a final agreement with my administration until they’ve gotten sign-off from their caucuses, and that hasn’t happened yet,” the governor said in a news release. “Conversations regarding the package are ongoing, productive, and, I believe, will ultimately be fruitful as we work to reinvent Connecticut and help create jobs in our state.”
The General Assembly has an Oct. 26 special session to vote on the jobs creation package. A public hearing on the package is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday. The public hearing will also address a separate proposal by the Malloy administration to finance a genetics research lab on the University of Connecticut Health Science campus in Farmington.
