From Davos, Malloy proposes another agency consolidation

Our governor does like to control the public conversation.

A little more than a half-hour before his scheduled noon conference call from Davos, Switzerland, where he is attending the World Economic Forum, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s office announced plans for another round of agency consolidations, including a merger of UConn and UConn Health Center.

“Last year we began the work of changing how the state does business-making government smaller, less costly, and easier to navigate,” Malloy said in a statement. “Like companies and families across the state and the country, state government must do more with less. This session we are continuing the effort to ensure government is working as efficiently as possible.”

What will this mean for positions and budgets?
