HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Connecticut lawmakers will hear from more of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's nominees for top state positions, the first step in the confirmation process.
The Executive and Legislative Nominations Committee has scheduled two public hearings on Tuesday and Thursday.
Former East Hartford Mayor Melody Currey, nominee for motor vehicles commissioner, and Steven Reviczky, the agriculture commissioner nominee, will appear before the panel Tuesday.
Thursday's agenda includes testimony from Dr. Jewel Mullen, nominee for public health commissioner; Jeffrey Parker, nominee for transportation commissioner; and former state Senate President Kevin Sullivan, nominee for commissioner of the Department of Revenue Services.
The committee is expected to vote on the nominations, sending them to the full General Assembly for further action.
