Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy Backs American Jobs Act

Statement from Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy:
“The President’s proposals will be a direct benefit to Connecticut residents and businesses.  For example, by investing in infrastructure his proposal would put people to work; by funding education he will avoid layoffs of teachers and increased class sizes; and by extending unemployment insurance he will keep out of poverty the approximately 78,000 Connecticut workers who will have exhausted their unemployment benefits by the end of this year.”
