HARTFORD -

Gov. Dannel Malloy announced an increase in job growth across Connecticut.

In the last year, 23,000 private sector jobs have been created.  It’s the biggest one-year gain since 2011.

Following a Bond Commission meeting, Malloy said the news was a win.

The commission also approved $10 million to build more affordable housing units, and $300 million toward roads and infrastructure. 

"In short, this bond agenda lives up to the philosophy that investing in our communities is a core component of forward-thinking economic development efforts," said Malloy.

Other approved funding includes $10 million in school security grants.
