Malloy makes eighth and final veto

HARTFORD, Conn. – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy vetoed a bill Monday that would require any police department that hires an officer from another police department to reimburse the first department for the cost of training.

“I am sympathetic to towns’ legitimate interest in protecting their investment after paying for the cost of police officer training,” Malloy said in his veto message . “On the other hand, I am concerned that imposing a two-year limitation, as required by this bill, may unduly constrain police officers’ professional mobility. Further consideration is warranted to determine the appropriate balance between these competing interests.”

It was his eighth and final veto of the 2014 legislative session. To date, Malloy has signed 250 bills.

In the final round Monday, Malloy signed a bill that mandates Hepatitis C testing for Baby Boomers born between 1945 and 1965. The Centers for Disease Control determined that as many as 120,000 deaths could be prevented through screening of this population.

    Malloy is absolutely right in this decision, you cannot limit the mobility of individuals in employment; organizations take a vested interest in training individuals, it is then up to that organization to also foster a career growth plan that allows those individuals who seek betterment to succeed. There is too much “exclusivity” in municipal organizations that do not allow for growth.
    Malloy is right, and this is clear, every employed person knows this to be true,
