HARTFORD – State Representative Jay Case (R-63) was informed on Tuesday, November 21st, that he had officially earned a one hundred percent voting record for the 2017 regular and special sessions. Since Case was elected in 2012, he has not missed a vote on the floor.
“In order to represent your views in Hartford it is imperative that I vote when given the opportunity to. I am proud to report to all of those in Colebrook, Goshen, Winchester and Torrington that I was present and voted in all 417 roll call votes held in the House of Representatives in 2017,” explained Case. “I also think this is a good opportunity to thank all of you who wrote, called, or e-mailed me with your legislative concerns. I consider everyone’s opinion before casting any vote.”
Case currently serves as Ranking Member to the Human Services Committee and is a member of the Appropriations and Internship Committees. The 2018 Legislative Session is slated to begin in February.
To the Editor,
Last week, the governor released a reactionary list of holdbacks, or budget reductions, to various state budget accounts to close a newly projected budget deficit. These reductions mainly reduced municipal aid. In light of the recent action taken by the executive branch, I felt it necessary to fully explain what the legislature had done in lieu of axing more aid to the towns of the Northwest Corner.
HARTFORD – State Representative Jay Case (R-63) and Brian Ohler (R-64) voted on a provision to add funding the elderly and disabled Renters Rebate Program at the State Capitol on Wednesday afternoon.
“It is too late in the year to be cutting vital services to elderly and disabled renters in our communities,” explained Rep. Case. “I have had several conversations with concerned constituents about their ability to continue to remain in their rented apartment or home. A fix was made, and as a result the Office of Policy and Management will continue to administer the program and issue checks to those who have qualified.”
According to Case, checks will be issued at the end of the current month.
