HARTFORD, Conn. – Republicans grilled state public safety chief Dora Schriro over controversy from her last post as head of New York City’s correction system during a lengthy confirmation hearing Tuesday.

Schriro took over last year as commissioner of the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection and must be reconfirmed by the legislature in order to continue serving during Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s second term.

House members of the Executive and Legislative Nominations Committee approved Schriro’s nomination Tuesday in a 7 – 3 vote, allowing her legislative approval process to continue. However, several Republicans on the committee focused on Schriro’s tenure as New York’s top correction official.
