Major Public Acts for 2018 and Upcoming Old Lyme Office Hours

Posted on June 8, 2018 by admin


Many significant pieces of legislation were debated and passed by the General Assembly during the 2018 legislative session, which adjourned on May 9th.

To help keep you informed about this legislation, the non-partisan Office of Legislative Research (OLR) has released summaries of the “2018 Major Public Acts”. To view the report, please click here.

This report is by no means exhaustive, and does not cover every piece of legislation passed, but mentions those that OLR believes are of greatest interest. The summaries are intended to be brief; OLR will release much more detailed summaries of all public acts later this summer.

If you would like to discuss these or any other issues that came before the legislature this session, please do not hesitate to contact me.


I’d like to invite you to join Senator Paul Formica and me on Saturday, June 16, at the Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library, located at 2 Library Lane in Old Lyme from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Everyone is welcome, and I hope to see you there.

Many thanks to everyone who provided feedback to me during the session—I am always happy to hear from you.

As always, if you have questions or concerns about state government, please do not hesitate to contact me at your convenience at: 1-800-842-1423 or

Best Regards,
