Forced School Regionalization, Hearing Details Announced

Posted on February 25, 2019 by jencusato


While SB 738, introduced by Sen. Looney, and SB 457, introduced by Sens. Duff and Osten, have been circulating for several weeks, there is now a third bill in the mix. It is a Governor’s Bill, which was released yesterday, when Governor Lamont presented his budget proposal. The new bill is SB 874: An Act Concerning Education Initiatives and Services in Connecticut.

All three of these bills are on the agenda for the public hearing. If your testimony concerns the topic of forced regionalization generally, it’s a good idea to cite all three bill numbers.

Date, Time, Place

The hearing is scheduled:

Friday, March 1
Starting at 1:00 pm
Legislative Office Building, Room 2E
300 Capitol Avenue
