Governor declines to issue travel ban for winter stormHARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Gov.
Dannel P. Malloy has decided not to issue a travel ban as a winter storm that could bring more than a foot of snow moves into Connecticut.
The governor has ordered all non-essential first- and second-shift state employees to stay home.
Malloy says high winds could lead to lengthy power outages, noting that crews will not go up in bucket trucks if winds exceed 30 mph.
Malloy says the state has 634 state plow trucks and 250 contractors working to clear the highways.
