Freshman Lawmaker is Present for Every Vote During the 2023 Regular Session
HARTFORD – In his first full legislative session, State Representative Steve Weir (R-55) has achieved a perfect score for votes taken on the floor of the House of Representatives for the 2023 legislative session.
Each year, the House Clerk’s Office releases the data on members’ votes during the Regular Session and Representative Weir was present for all 368 votes taken during that time, one of 68 lawmakers to receive a perfect score.
“I’m proud to have achieved a 100% voting score in my first session,” Rep. Weir said. When I was first elected, I made a commitment to serving the people of the district and taking this honor and role seriously. I documented every vote, my reasons for voting in favor or opposition to it, and whether or not the bill ultimately passed. I made it a point to not only be present for votes on the floor, but also every vote taken in the committees I am a member of. I’m very proud of my voting record and of my commitment to accountability, and I look forward to continuing to work on behalf of the citizens of the 55th district.”
Representative Weir represents the towns of Andover, Bolton, Glastonbury, Hebron and Marlborough in the General Assembly. He currently serves on the legislature’s Labor, Higher Education, and Housing Committees.
