(NECN) - Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy will sign a law that will raise the state minimum wage to $10.10 by 2017 Thursday.

This makes Connecticut the first state in the country to match the pay rate that President Obama has been pushing for as the federal minimum wage.
    
The bill passed the House and the Senate in back-to-back votes Wednesday.
     
Similar proposals are being considered by other states, including Massachusetts.
