Malloy Says “Delay is Unconscionable”
Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy started the new year by urging Speaker of the House John Boehner to expedite passage of a bill through Congress to help Hurricane Sandy victims in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey.
Malloy joined other governors from storm ravaged northeast states in an effort to support legislation that would provide billions of dollars in aid.
“It sends a terrible message to the citizens of the affected states that the leadership of the House of Representatives feels no sense of urgency, with winter upon us, to aid fellow citizens in their great time of need as the Congress has done time and time again when other natural disasters have devastated communities elsewhere in this country”, wrote Governor Malloy.
