FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Legislative leaders have agreed to push back the start of the joint legislative session one day due to the pending snowstorm, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced Tuesday.
The joint session will begin at noon Thursday, Feb. 6, at which time the governor will deliver his State of the State Address. It had been set originally for Wednesday at noon and then Wednesday at 5 p.m.
“Given the forecast over the next couple of days, I’ve asked legislative leaders to postpone the start of session until February 6,” Malloy said in a statement. “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.”
Senate President Donald E. Williams Jr. added that safety is "first and foremost."
“It makes sense to exercise caution and move opening day to Thursday given the blizzard-like conditions being predicted for tomorrow,” Willams said in the statement.
