Today, House Republican Leader Vincent Candelora and the House Republican Caucus outlined our full legislative proposals for the 2022 Legislative Session to focus on restoring public safety, establishing good government practices, making Connecticut more affordable, ensuring educational resources are available to all students and addressing the needs of Connecticut’s businesses.

The House Republican Plan focuses on five key initiatives to tackle the most important issues facing Connecticut residents.

  • For You and Your Family
  • Government that Works for You
  • Education and Student Support
  • Protecting Small Business Jobs
  • Protecting the Public

Each of these points is explained in more detail on our website.

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.
