To the Editor,
There are only a few days remaining in the 2018 Session, and the majority party has yet to schedule a debate on the state budget and the projected $321 million deficit. Long-term budget solutions that stabilize our economy must be implemented to address this shortfall rather than gimmicks, such as the re-creation of a tolling system on our state highways.

HARTFORD – A bi-partisan School Safety Working Group convened its first meeting to study issues surrounding school safety on Wednesday, April 18. State Representative Christie Carpino (Cromwell/Portland) was named as Vice Chair to the group.
“Tragic events at home and across the country remind us that we need to stay vigilant when it comes to school security,” explained Carpino, who is also a parent of school-aged children. “We passed comprehensive legislation in 2013 that some school districts are failing to implement. It’s important to identify those failures, review national practices and create legislative recommendations to ensure the safety of our students and educators.”
