“I stand with my fellow members of the Conservative Caucus in objecting to yet another extension of the governor’s emergency powers. To date, these extensions have resulted masks for school children and vaccine mandates that have totally taken an individual’s medical choices away from them. This is wrong.

It is time that the legislature is once again recognized as the voice of the people in our state. There is no way I will support an extension to emergency orders.”– State Representative Anne Dauphinais

I stand with my fellow members of the Connecticut House Republicans in addressing the recent juvenile crime crisis that has been impacting Connecticut.

Posted on July 12, 2021


“Summer time is in full swing and it feels like we are on the executive order merry-go-round as Governor Lamont is again asking for an extension of emergency powers.
