HARTFORD — State Representative Holly Cheeseman (R-37) has proposed more bills to Legislative leaders; this time, they concern our students and public health policies.
Bills submitted by Rep. Cheeseman that were referred to the Education and Higher Education & Employment Advancement Committees largely aim to financially support our schools, protect our students and help our Boards of Education run more efficiently. The specific bills include:
Rep. Cheeseman’s proposed legislation regarding public health supports the elderly and disabled, pharmacy customers and prevents further cases of opioid abuse:
A couple final pieces of noteworthy legislation proposed by Rep. Cheeseman benefit our veterans. Senate Bill (S.B.) 10 and Senate Joint Resolution (S.J.) 3 would honor women who served as members of the Cadet Nurse Corps during the Second World War by recognizing them as veterans and establishing June 15th as “Cadet Nurse Corps Day.”
All bill proposals in the General Assembly are considered by legislative committees, and potentially brought to a public hearing, before being raised to the House and Senate for a vote.
