HIGH FIVE: The AP's Stephen Singer reported Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy "negotiated to bring NBC Sports to Connecticut as part of his 'First Five' initiative, which is intended to consolidate various tax credits to draw the first five businesses that invest $25 million in Connecticut and create 200 jobs over five years." So far, he "has struck deals with ESPN ... as well as insurer Cigna and the online ticket exchange TicketNetwork Inc." A government official said that "details about the tax credits in the latest deal still have to be worked out between the legislature and NBC Sports" (AP, 10/21).
