Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy met on Monday in his Capitol office with Metropolitan Transportation Authority Chairman Thomas Prendergast and new Metro-North President Joseph Giulietti.

Governor Malloy says one key decision was made at Monday's meeting. The MTA agreed that any major project conducted on the rail's infrastructure, that could potentially disrupt rail service, will be independently reviewed beforehand.
