Statement from State Representative Anne Dauphinais 

Earlier this afternoon, the House and Senate voted in favor of extending Governor Ned Lamont’s emergency powers through September 30, 2021, (just enough time to extend the mask enforcement for school children) the sixth extension since he originally put his orders in place. The continuation of Governor Lamont’s emergency executive powers passed by a vote of 73-56, with a handful of Democrats saying enough is enough. To me this isn’t just about

“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. This Wednesday, the legislature will be in special session to debate and vote on these extensions and this has to stop! Not one more day does this governor’s executive powers need to be extended.

The voice of the people has been silenced at the State Capitol for long enough and I encourage you all to contact House and Senate Democrats

By now, many of you have seen the story of the Wolcott Senior Center which was ransacked in the early morning hours on Monday by two juveniles. This disgusting behavior is very unfortunate

CONSERVATIVE CAUCUS BLASTS DEMOCRATS FOR AUTOMATICALLY ERASING HATE CRIME CONVICTIONS

Until the passage of S.B. No. 1019, a person seeking to erase their criminal record would be required to stand before the Boards of Pardons & Parole.

This would include demonstrating that they have taken responsibility for their mistake and have since remained in good standing in society.

Improving the Boards of Pardons & Paroles would have been far more prudent then this

We are back in session today in the House of Representatives, but I wanted to point out a bill that saw hours of debate last Tuesday evening. The Democrat majority in the legislature’s sights continued to be set on removing more parental rights by passing damaging legislation. In the latest blow to a parent’s right to do what is in the best interest of their child, H.B. No. 6389: An Act Concerning Explanations of Benefits, was passed and will now head to the Senate for further debate. The bill title
