Gov. Dannel P. Malloy continued his budget preview tour today, sharing his plan to boost the state’s major education grant to cities and towns by $152.3 million over the next two fiscal years, with nearly all the increase earmarked for low-achieving districts.

But Malloy, who will propose his new biennial budget to the General Assembly Wednesday, hinted that he would not cut other municipal grant programs to pay for the Education Cost Sharing increase—though he refused to promise anything outright.

“You know what I did for 14 years, and you probably know where I am coming from on this stuff,” said Malloy, the former mayor of Stamford.

Malloy was joined by the education commissioner and teacher union officials at a news conference outside his Capitol office as he named education a priority in a difficult fiscal year.
