This week, and the weeks ahead, are fully scheduled with public hearings on issues of relevance to our state. I encourage you to follow the Bulletin posted on the General Assembly website, www.cga.ct.gov, if you are interested in testifying at any of them.

 

Governor Lamont will present his budget to legislators and the public on Wednesday, February 20th. You may stream this live on CT-N or watch it on TV, Channel 59, around noon.

 

I would also like to share with you an editorial I wrote for the Darien Times titled “Holding on to Optimism While Creating Common ‘Cents’ in Connecticut.” It details the major issues currently facing the Legislature, such as regionalization and new taxes. Click here to read the full article.
