Caucus Proposals - 2022

House Republicans are presenting their legislative priorities for the 2022 session. These initiatives focus on restoring public safety, establishing good faith government practices, making life more affordable, ensuring educational resources are available to all students, and addressing the needs of Connecticut's businesses.

Our Proposals

PROTECTING THE PUBLIC

The impact of legislative Democrats’ persistent efforts to erode our state’s criminal justice system came into focus over the last year, and residents’ mounting concerns grew to include frightening crimes such as brazen carjackings, vehicles stolen with children inside, and criminals breaking into homes to grab keys to steal cars and use them in crime sprees.

FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY

Many Connecticut families are struggling to keep up with inflation and a stagnant job market. It’s critical that the state legislature provides meaningful financial relief, not one-time gimmicks, to ease the burden of balancing the household check book.

GOVERNMENT THAT WORKS FOR YOU

As Republicans, we will continue to bring attention to wasteful spending and allegations of fraud, and we will fight to hold the state’s public agencies and programs accountable to you.

EDUCATION AND STUDENT SUPPORT

The state has not provided coherent guidance for teachers and students, with far too many children missing critical time in a physical classroom. Students have a right to safely achieving a high quality education. Supporting student and faculty needs, providing greater access to job readiness programs, and ensuring mental health services are available are important factors in getting our state’s education system back on track.

PROTECTING SMALL BUSINESS JOBS

Legislative Democrats have continually asked Connecticut’s business owners to pay onerous filing fees and taxes, while demanding they provide higher wages in the face of an unprecedented employment shortage. Connecticut’s job creators are the backbone of our state and local economies. Providing them with resources needed to fulfill training and job requirements, lessening tax thresholds, and removing red tape are top priorities this session.
