Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is traveling to Washington, D.C. to speak to representatives of the security industry.
The Democrat is scheduled to appear Tuesday at the Security Industry Association's Government Summit, which is expected to attract various facets of the industry, including executives, and sales and marketing professionals.
Malloy's remarks will precede a panel discussion on school safety. Malloy is expected to speak about the Dec. 14 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School and efforts the state is making to improve school safety.
Other scheduled speakers include U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, the Texas Republican who chairs the House Committee on Homeland Security, and U.S. Rep. Pat Meehan, a Pennsylvania Republican who sits on the committee. Journalist and author Bob Woodward is slated to be conference's keynote speaker.
