Gov. Malloy sits down with News 12 after session

HARTFORD - Gov. Dannel Malloy talked in depth with News 12 Connecticut about the legislative session that ended earlier this week.

Malloy says he does not have any major disappointments and called the session dynamic.

The governor addressed the General Assembly just after midnight when the session closed on Wednesday.

Malloy says he would like to have seen lawmakers take further action on the job creation front, but the bill failed to come up for a vote in the House.

He says the state took major steps forward during the short session in several key areas, including in education and closing the achievement gap.To watch an extended interview with Gov. Dannel Malloy on the recent legislative session, click on iO Extra on Channel 612.
