HARTFORD -

Gov. Dannel Malloy delivered his final address Wednesday to the General Assembly in Hartford.

The governor is not seeking re-election in November and has had a complicated relationship with state legislators over the past seven years.

During his closing remarks, he acknowledged the progress they've made together, including labor agreements that he says will save the state more than $42 billion over the next 20 years.

"It is my great hope that in the coming years, those who replace the executive branch and those who will continue to serve will continue to work on reinforcing fiscal discipline in the state of Connecticut and to make this a stronger, better place for all of our citizens, as well as our future citizens," Malloy said.

Gov. Malloy says he's proud to have served as Connecticut's 88th governor and called it the honor of his lifetime.
