Upcoming 2018 Legislative Session

Posted on January 16, 2018 by admin


In a few weeks, the 2018 Legislative Session will be starting. On February 7th, the General Assembly begins the legislature’s “short session.” This three month session only allows bills related to budgetary, revenue and financial matters to be considered, bills on other subject matters may only be brought up by committees.

I encourage you to stay up to date with legislative activity by checking the following resources:

CT-N– follow committee meetings and House debates as they unfold live on Connecticut’s public affairs television network, CT-N, or by streaming the proceedings online here.

The CGA Website– the Connecticut General Assembly website provides a variety of resources including bill search and a daily calendar of events happening at the Capitol. To visit the website, click here.

Prior to the beginning of session, the state’s non-partisan Office of Legislative Research (OLR) issued their annual report on important issues the General Assembly may face during the 2018 session. To view the report, click here.

I will also send updates and information throughout the legislative session so stay tuned. I am here in Hartford to represent your voice and the interests of our community.

Please feel free to contact me at Dave.Yaccarino@housegop.ct.gov  or 1-800-842-1423. You can also follow my legislative work at the Capitol and in town by visiting my website, www.repyaccarino.com.

I hope this information is helpful; I look forward to hearing from you.
