HARTFORD – The legislature’s Conservative Caucus today blasted the leadership of the Public Health Committee for cutting Connecticut residents off after twenty-four hours and ending public discussion regarding proposed legislation that would end the state’s religious exemption from immunization, and potentially expel thousands of healthy children from public schools across the state.

Nearly 2,000 people signed up to testify on two measures – SB 568 – An Act Eliminating the Nonmedical Exemption

Opening Day of the 2021 Legislative Session

Yesterday, after being honored to take the oath of office to protect the Constitution of our state and country, I voted against the rules allowing the legislature to make laws by remote control without any personal interaction with the voters.

This is being done because of public health issues but that is a dodge of responsibility of the highest order. Every day our fellow citizens are going to work, caring for their children and parents, holding onto their businesses and serving the public. Yet

Representative Dauphinais Supports House Republican Leader-Elect’s Call on Lamont to Delay Pay Raises, Payroll Tax Amid Pandemic

Posted on December 22, 2020 by mmeadows

I support Leader-Elect Candelora’s call to delay the scheduled pay raises and the 0.5% payroll tax targeting members of the private sector.

We are in a time when people are losing their jobs and some businesses are closing their doors. It is wrong that some are getting pay raises, while being exempt from this latest tax and others are left to shoulder the financial burden.

With so many struggling, it is hard to fathom why select people should see more money coming out of their paychecks.

Today, the Lieutenant Governor noted that since March, domestic violence calls are up more than 70%, and shelters are at 151%, which

Hartford – On Friday morning, a special legislative oversight committee voted in favor, strictly along party lines, for Governor Lamont to maintain his emergency powers.

This order, which was slated to expire on September 9, was extended by the governor last week. The special legislative committee voted in favor of the order 6-4, which will now extend the governor’s unilateral rule through
