(WTNH) — The final week of December was a relatively quiet one in terms of Connecticut politics.

On Wednesday, Governor Dannel Malloy announced that the state is giving 10 towns nearly five and a half million dollars for transited-oriented development.

Basically, this money will be used to spur development along the soon-to-be complete Hartford Rail Line and the CT Fast Track bus line.
