HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says he’s fine with giving a committee more time to come up with ways to finance his proposed 30-year, $100 billion transportation overhaul.

The group created by Democratic governor was originally tasked with recommending funding ideas by this fall. But Malloy said Tuesday he expects the group to take until the end of the year to review additional ideas from around the country, calling it “A-OK” with him.

Malloy said he doesn’t expect the delay to affect his plans to upgrade everything from rail bridges to highways.

Malloy reiterated Tuesday that state lawmakers must now focus on putting a question on the November 2016 ballot about whether to amend the state constitution in order to prevent transportation funds from being spent on other matters.
