HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A coalition of Connecticut mayors and first selectmen is the latest group to offer recommendations for reducing gun violence in the wake of the deadly school shooting in Newtown.

The Connecticut Conference of Municipalities has scheduled a news conference at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford on Wednesday morning. The group, which represents city and town leaders across the state, plans to offer 13 legislative proposals.

CCM's recommendations come as two tasks forces — created by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and the General Assembly — consider possible legislation for this session that addresses issues raised by the Dec. 14 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, which left 20 first graders and six educators dead. Besides gun violence, those groups are also looking at school safety and mental health issues.
