HARTFORD - Gov. Dannel Malloy delivered his State of the State today, addressing the General Assembly on the first day of its session.

Malloy touched on the need to prevent future tragedies like the Sandy Hook shootings. The governor said the state needs to balance respect for individual rights with the obligation for greater public safety.

Malloy praised the progress the state made between Tropical Storm Irene and Hurricane Sandy. The governor said new laws enacted to prevent the long-term blackouts and to hold power companies responsible for outages made Connecticut better prepared for Sandy and the next major storm.

Malloy also spoke about the difficulties surrounding the state budget and the issue of unemployment in the state.
