Governor Dannel Malloy and Robert Klee, commissioner of the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection appeared on WNPR's Where We Live to talk about the environment, energy, politics, and more.

We live-tweeted the show, which you can read below. Malloy talked about fracking to lead the show, saying he wants to stop waste from natural gas drilling at the Connecticut state border. He supports a proposed bill that would impose a two-year moratorium on the disposal or storage of fracking waste in Connecticut.

The governor also pulled back on a proposed $55.00 individual tax rebate, saying his top two priorities are jobs and education, and beyond that, a budget surplus.

Malloy said he still wants to see keno repealed during the current legislative session. While talking about education, he said he thinks students in Connecticut opting out of state standardized testing may be violating federal law.
