GOV. MALLOY & LEGISLATIVE LEADERS: STATE OF THE STATE ADDRESS POSTPONED UNTIL THURSDAY
 
(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced that legislative leaders have agreed to push back the start of the joint legislative session one day due to the pending snow storm.  The joint session will begin at noon on Thursday, at which time the Governor will deliver his State of the State Address. 
 
“Given the forecast over the next couple of days, I’ve asked legislative leaders to postpone the start of session until February 6,” said Governor Malloy.   “While I hope the storm is not as bad as the predictions suggest, I also don’t want to put anyone in harm’s way.  I want to thank the leaders for accommodating this request.”
 
“Safety is first and foremost,” said Senate President Donald E. Williams, Jr. (D-Brooklyn).  “It makes sense to exercise caution and move opening day to Thursday given the blizzard-like conditions being predicted for tomorrow.”
 
“In consideration of the safety of everyone who will be participating and visiting, we have decided to delay the joint legislative session of the General Assembly by one day to Thursday, February 6,” said Speaker of the House Brendan Sharkey (D-Hamden).  “This decision was based on the latest forecast for a serious winter storm Wednesday, and is the prudent thing to do for the safety of all concerned.”
