HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy plans to offer legislation that could lead to a coordinated long-term plan for Long Island Sound.

The Democrat announced Monday he will propose the Long Island Sound Blue Plan this month. It will direct the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and UConn to work with various agencies, academic institutions and groups to come up with an inventory of natural resources and human resources of Long Island Sound.

That information would be used to guide future use of the waters and submerged lands.

Malloy said his proposal would expand upon the work of an existing Connecticut and New York commission.

Massachusetts and Rhode Island have developed similar plans for their coastlines and waterways. Malloy said New York is now engaged in a similar process.
