HB5386 – AN ACT CONCERNING VARIOUS PAY EQUITY AND FAIRNESS MATTERS has passed the House by a final vote tally of: 142-4.

I was happy to support this bipartisan provision. In 2016, women in Connecticut made 79 cents on the dollar compared to men, according to the NWLC. On average, women made $529,160 less than their male counterparts over their lifetime.

I’m proud to support #payequity and #fairness for women. It’s time.
