Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is in Washington, D.C., for the midwinter meeting of the National Governors Association, which began today and ends Monday with a session at the White House.
The governor returns to Washington with a profile raised by tragedy: He has had repeated contact with President Obama and Vice President Biden since the Newtown shootings.
Malloy also returns with a new status: He has been appointed by the president to the Council of Governors, a group of 10 governors established in 2010 to coordinate matters involving the National Guard and homeland security.
