Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy says he has a plan to make college more affordable. The Democrat, who is running for re-election, outlined his plan at campaign stops in New Britain, Danbury, Norwalk and Stamford on Tuesday.

Malloy’s three point plan would allow Connecticut residents to take up to a $2,500 tax credit on student loan interest; it would allowing students to refinance their loans to lower rates; it would boost the governor’s scholarship fund from $43.6 million a year to $53.6 million a year.

Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy released a plan on Monday that he says will create jobs and improve the state’s economy if he wins a second term. The Democrat is running for reelection in November.

The plan includes helping minority contractors, Malloy said. It would invest $100 million over the next two years to expand the state’s small business express program, he said. That would create an additional 10,000 jobs.
