Posted on August 6, 2018 by jpheasant


The National Weather Service has issuing a heat advisory for all towns throughout the state. During Extreme Heat, the Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (DEMHS) and Department of Public Health (DPH) have offered several ways to stay cool and safe during these warmer temperatures.

Those most at risk:
1. Infants and young children are especially sensitive to the effects of high temperatures.
2. People 65 or older may not compensate for heat stress efficiently and are less likely to sense and respond to change in temperature.
3. People who overexert themselves during work or exercise may become dehydrated and susceptible to heat sickness.
4. People who are physically ill, especially those with heart disease, high blood pressure or who take certain medications, such as for depression, insomnia, or poor circulation.

Two Crumbling Foundations Amendments Receive Passage at Federal Level

Posted on August 3, 2018 by jpheasant


HARTFORD – On Tuesday, more than a dozen of my Republican colleagues in the House and Senate sent letters to the President of the United States, Senate Majority Leader, and House Speaker urging them to support three amendments from U.S. Senators Chris Murphy, Richard Blumenthal, and representatives John Larson and Joe Courtney that would provide assistance to those homeowners who have been affected by a crumbling foundation.

Wednesday we received word that two of the amendments we asked for passage received support.

House Amendment 292 to H.R. 3354 seeks to provide funding in the Community Development Block Grant program to examine the application of grant funds to mitigate and remediate the effects of pyrrhotite-related damage.

House Amendment 881 to H.R. 6147 seeks to provide funding for the U.S. Geological Survey to develop a map showing pyrrhotite occurrences across the United States. This would help to ensure residents of other states never have to grapple with this crisis in the future.

I want to thank Ben Carson, U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, for visiting Connecticut in late May and getting a firsthand look at the issue that has affect many of our residents. This meeting has now opened the door on the federal level to help foster ongoing discussions and it is of vital importance that we continue to work alongside the current Republican administration in Washington D.C. in order to do all that we can to ensure this issue is resolved.
