WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau On The Story

Now he says the plan is just about ready for the next step.

“We’re trying to create jobs since the last day of the session when I told the legislature I’d be bringing them back into special session to address job growth and job attraction,” Malloy told WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau on Tuesday.

Malloy says his is an aggressive plan.

“I’ve been working every day and night, except perhaps during the storm, on a set of proposals that I think will make Connecticut a much friendlier place for job growth creation and also to attract jobs from other states,” he said.

After all, he says, other states have been aggressive in trying to take Connecticut’s jobs.

Malloy says it’s been more than two decades since a push for jobs was was made in Connecticut and he’ll present the plan to lawmakers within the next several weeks.

“For 22 years, we failed to create any jobs. That’s gonna change,” said Malloy.
