HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Due to the pending snow storm, Governor Malloy and legislative leaders have postponed the start of the joint legislative session to Thursday.

The joint session will begin at noon on Thursday, at which time the Governor will deliver his State of the State Address.

“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,” said Governor Malloy.

Legislative leaders agree with the Governor and expressed their desire to make sure everyone stays safe during the upcoming storm.

“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.”
