Connecticut Gov. Malloy Signs 2 Landmark Energy Bills Into Law

Even before Gov. Dannel P. Malloy signed key energy legislation into law on Monday, Connecticut's three regulated natural gas companies and a Houston energy company asked regulators to OK expansion plans that anticipated the state's new push for natural gas.

One measure the governor signed expands the state's natural gas distribution system. The states regulated natural gas companies have already filed a joint proposal outlining how they would connect 280,000 customers over 10 years.

"Obviously, I'd like as much of that done today as possible," Malloy said soon after signing the new law.
Connecticut Natural Gas, Southern Connecticut Gas and Yankee Gas presented state regulators with a rare joint proposal last month asking the state to approve a new rate plan to finance the massive project hooking up hundreds of thousands of natural gas customers.
