HARTFORD, Conn. – One of the four bills Gov. Dannel P. Malloy vetoed Tuesday would have prescribed educational qualifications for the state’s Education Commissioner.

In his veto message, Malloy said the legislation “encroaches on the purview” of the chief executive and would prevent them from picking “the best candidate to lead the department.”

The legislation was supported by the state’s two teacher unions.

    It’s a good day in Connecticut when the governor vetoes legislation supported by the teachers unions. Too bad he couldn’t veto the budget.

  2. Non partisan

    Curious- Does the budget preserve the tax free pension gift Malloy fave the teachers to gain support for implementation of common core?
