In a letter to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, Deputy Speaker Bob Godfrey and Rep. Janice Giegler, minority whip, implore him to sign HB 5233, An Act Concerning Health Insurance Coverage for Tomosynthesis for Breast Cancer Screenings, on behalf of thousands of women across Connecticut who deserve quality diagnostics and health care.
"This is an important next step in ensuring that people in the state of Connecticut are safe in their own homes,” Godfrey said after the House of Representatives passed legislation requiring gun owners to surrender their firearms within 24 hours after being served with a temporary restraining order in domestic violence cases.

For Representative Bob Godfrey, protecting firefighters and making sure they're treated fairly is of paramount concern. That is why he co-sponsored a bill that establishes a relief fund for wage replacements. The fund will be used for firefighters who are battling work-related cancer. House Bill 5262 provides compensation for current and former uniformed members of a paid or volunteer fire department who suffer from certain diseases as a result of performing their jobs.
