Governor Dannel Malloy is scheduled to present his budget plan for the next two years this afternoon to a joint session of the General Assembly. His administration is also expected to unveil details of the proposed overhaul of Connecticut's transportation system.
Wilton Senator Toni Boucher is a leader of the Transportation Committee and says they will have their work cut out for them. She notes that the two ranking members are from the Greater Danbury area. She is one of them. The other is Representative Tom O'Dea of Wilton. Local members of the committee also include Representative Jan Giegler of Danbury, Gail Lavielle of Wilton and David Labriola, whose district includes Oxford and Southbury.
Boucher expects a lot of work will be done this session to improve train safety, particularly along the Danbury Branch of Metro North.
