TRUMBULL- State Rep. David Rutigliano (R-Trumbull) visited the 4th graders at Daniels Farm School and had a discussion with the class about state and local government issues.
“It is always fun to spend time with these smart and curious fourth graders. I look forward to their visit to the State Capitol in the spring,” said Rep. Rutigliano.
Rep. Rutigliano and the students talked about the duties of a state representative and how a bill becomes a law from concept and idea to final signature by the Governor, and how the General Assembly is a part-time legislature.
Many of the students were surprised the Connecticut Legislature was a part-time job. Rep. Rutigliano used the example of how as a part-time legislator he is also a small business owner in Trumbull.
