CLINTON – State Rep. Jesse MacLachlan and local residents met at the Henry Carter Hull Library on Monday night to discuss legislation for the upcoming session and its impact on the community.
“I want to thank the residents who came to voice their concerns and listen to my Capitol update,” said Rep. MacLachlan. “We need to stay focused on growing our local economy, improving our transportation system, and providing high-quality education to our students – these are the three things that I continue to hear most from the residents in my communities, and will be my focus this legislative session.”
The discussion included state-mandated regionalization of schools, tolls, and a tax on groceries. Additional topics included funding for the intellectually disabled, the legalization of marijuana, and local town infrastructure projects such as the Clinton train station improvement.
Rep. MacLachlan will be hosting another office hour in Killingworth on Wednesday, February 20th to give an update on the Governor’s budget proposal, delivered earlier the same day.
