NEWTOWN – Earlier this week, State Representatives J.P. Sredzinski (R-112), Mitch Bolinsky (R-106) and Raghib Allie-Brennan (D-2) met with Newtown Rehabilitation & Health Care Center Administrator Joel Carmichael, and residents, to discuss how state government can help improve the experience for long-term care residents.  Many of the residents’ and healthcare providers’ concerns focused on facility staffing levels, provisions of enhanced training for caregivers, and the development of a statewide network of volunteers to augment companionship as well as the social-emotional needs of residents.

“The best part of this meeting was getting to know, face-to-face, the individuals who are directly impacted by the human-services related budget decisions made in Hartford,” said Rep. Sredzinski, member of the Legislature’s Human Services Committee. “I thank Joel and the residents who met with us for speaking openly about the service gaps they are experiencing due to underfunding and understaffing. I hope that they will continue to reach out to us in the future with their concerns so that we may advocate for their needs in the next legislative session.”

House Bill 7291An Act Concerning School Security, requires the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP) to update school security and safety plan standards, simplify school security reporting requirements and infrastructure grant applications, and identify qualified school security consultants and limit the existing registry to such individuals only.

“We set out to form the School Safety Working Group to answer the question, ‘Are we doing everything we can to keep our kids safe at school?’” said Rep. Sredzinski, co-sponsor of the bill and Ranking Member of the Legislature’s Public Safety Committee. “I thank Former State Representative Brian Ohler for helping to put this team together. Many ideas came out of this group, including the physical security of the buildings, school safety personnel, and even social-emotional learning, among other instructional items. This is a great bill – it passed out of the Public Safety Committee unanimously thanks to the help of Chairman Verrengia and will be done within available appropriations, so it has no fiscal impact on the State of Connecticut.”
