HARTFORD – State Representative Christie Carpino (Cromwell/Portland) championed legislation that will assist residents struggling with substance addiction. The bill will provide additional protections to those needing a safe place to live while on the road to recovery. It implements a voluntary database for sober homes that have been certified by the National Alliance for Recovery Residences (NARR).
“This legislation is intended to help those who are trying to beat addiction. Recovery is a long process and safe sober homes are an important part of that journey,” said Rep. Carpino. “Addiction knows no boundaries and residents in every corner of the state are victims of this disease.”

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.
