GOV. MALLOY STATEMENT ON MTA BOARD'S DECISION TO CREDIT METRO-NORTH NEW HAVEN 
LINE CUSTOMERS 
(HARTFORD, CT) - Governor Dannel P. Malloy released the following statement 
following the MTA Board's vote this afternoon to approve a credit for 
Metro-North Railroad's New Haven Line customers with monthly or weekly tickets 
during the ongoing power outage. 
"While I look forward to reviewing and providing input on their plan, today's 
news is certainly a step in the right direction.  As I expressed earlier today 
in a letter to the board, Con Ed should underwrite the refunds, even as they 
are administered by MNR and MTA.  Con Ed should also be responsible for any and 
all additional costs related to the interim service plan and the ultimate 
restoration of service. 
"Connecticut commuters should never have been put in this situation in the 
first place, but the unprecedented action taken by the board today is the first 
step in making things right."
