Dan Malloy in 2018 Governor's State of the State speeches


On Abortion: Free birth control coverage

While we're working on health care, we can do one more thing: we can pass a law that ensures that, irrespective of what happens in Washington, birth control for Connecticut women will remain cost-free.

On Energy & Oil: Aggressively pursue clean energy

We need to create a new comprehensive resiliency plan--one that gives Connecticut towns the tools and the resources they need to protect their residents. Together, let's create a new, more aggressive target for clean air. Let's mandate that by the year 2030, 75 percent of Connecticut energy is clean energy.

On Gun Control: Close loopholes; ban bump stocks

Surely, regardless of where each of us stands on the second amendment, we can all agree that no innocent person should know the terror of gunfire raining down on them at a rate of 90 bullets every ten seconds. Together, let us do what Congress could not do. Let's close dangerous loopholes and ban bump stocks in the State of Connecticut.

On Gun Control: Allow early voting, explore vote by mail

Together this session, we can pass a constitutional amendment that would allow all Connecticut residents to vote early for any reason. And on this topic, let us not waste a moment in our effort to make voting easier and more accessible. I will issue an executive order directing my administration to explore and report on the feasibility and benefits of creating a 'vote by mail' system in Connecticut.

On Health Care: Healthcare a fundamental right

Connecticut Fairness should mean keeping health insurance affordable for everyone. We must take action to ensure stability in our insurance marketplace and to contain premium costs for consumers. Together, let's pass a bill that preserves the most vital elements of the Affordable Care Act--including the individual mandate. Let's make it clear that in Connecticut, healthcare is a fundamental right.
