HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — State employees are providing some tips for Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy as he prepares to tackle a budget deficit projected to top $3 billion.

Shortly after his inauguration Wednesday, the new governor sent out an e-mail to the workers asking for suggestions on reducing costs and making the state government more efficient.

His office says Malloy received nearly 150 e-mails the next day.

While many of the responses were congratulatory, some offered specific ideas on ways to save money. Suggestions included trimming top-heavy management at agencies, scrutinizing unnecessary overtime, ending longevity payments for veteran employees and discontinuing leases for building space.
