HARTFORD – State Representative Jay Case (R-Winsted) earned the AARP Capitol Caregiver award for his work on the Money Follows the Person (MFP) program in the 2018 Legislative Session. MFP is designed to provide Connecticut residents with long-term care options through a transparent process.
According to AARP, Case earned the Capitol Caregiver honors because he was integral to the expansion of MFP, ensuring senior residents in the Northwest Corner and throughout the State of Connecticut will have greater consumer autonomy and confidence.

Hartford – State Representative Jay Case (R-Winsted) was named as an Assistant Republican Leader on Tuesday afternoon at the State Capitol. House Republican Leader Themis Klarides made the official assignments and has asked Case to continue his role as Ranking Member of the Human Services Committee. Additionally, Case will serve on the Appropriations Committee, Banking Committee and Internship Committee.
“As the session quickly approaches, I am excited to get to work legislatively in Hartford. The committee process is an integral part of the legislature because in these meetings we get to discuss and debate certain pieces of public policy before pushing them to the House or Senate floors, where they become law. I look forward to continuing the work of the Human Services Committee so we can continue to deliver life improving services to the populations that depend on them,” stated Rep. Case.
