HARTFORD, Conn. – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy celebrated the 3-year-old paid sick leave law Tuesday with two lawmakers, an advocate, and a handful of union folks at the state Capitol.

The Democrat who is seeking re-election said all of the “horrible” things that opponents said would happen as a result of the law haven’t happened.

“The positive results of this legislation far outweigh the negative impacts,” Malloy said.

However, he admitted that there’s been little academic research on the topic.

The City University of New York did a study earlier this year, which found the Connecticut law had a modest impact on businesses in the state.
