I am very pleased to count myself as a strong supporter of this important bill. Our firefighters are there for us every day and every night to protect our families and neighborhoods, and are often exposed to pollutants that contribute to cancers. It is imperative that we provide a vehicle to support them – I look forward to seeing this measure become law.
From expanding concussion awareness to younger kids, to keeping cancer causing chemicals and materials away from them, I am very excited about these measures we are working on and am pleased to be playing a major role in their progress as Vice-Chair of the Committee on Children.
I joined with representatives from nine chambers of commerce and business organizations from across Connecticut this morning that signed a letter to Governor Malloy outlining four key elements they say will boost the state economy.
