HARTFORD, CT (AP) -

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is continuing his tour of Connecticut tourism spots, promoting the state's new "Still Revolutionary" summer tourism campaign.

The governor is scheduled to make stops on Wednesday in Bozrah, Waterford, Niantic and Old Lyme.

Earlier this month, Malloy made similar stops at tourist destinations in western and central Connecticut, highlighting the role that hospitality, tourism and recreation attractions play in the state's economy.

Malloy said the industry employs more than 110,000 people and generates $1.15 billion in state and local tax revenue.

The two-year, $27 million "Still Revolutionary" marketing campaign initiative is attempting to draw attention to Connecticut's role in the Revolutionary War. The campaign also highlights the state's role in the Industrial Revolution.
