At an unrelated press conference Monday, Malloy said he read the transcript of Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Commissioner Daniel C. Esty’s call with UBS investors and saw nothing wrong with what he said.

“I read the entirety of the transcript,” Malloy said. “Everything he said there he’s said elsewhere. Almost everything he said I’ve said publicly time and time and time again.”

The conference call included 153 individuals from Wall Street investment firms and energy industry insiders. It prompted outcry from the environmental community and delayed a Senate vote on the renewable portfolio standards bill.
