Connecticut Governor Says No Trouble With Road Salt Supply
(Hartford, CT) -- While New York and New Jersey are talking about a shortage of road salt to help clear the roads, Connecticut's governor says his state has plenty.
Governor Dannel Malloy said at a press conference that he's aware of other cities experiencing shortages and says Connecticut will sometimes lend salt to other areas. But he added, "that's not our primary job and they should not look to us for that purpose." New York City has spread some 346-thousand tons of salt on its roads so far this year, which is almost the total for last winter.
