I have introduced many pieces of legislation this session aimed to improve healthcare, equity in the workplace, and the quality of life for all Connecticut families. In order to determine how laws will impact residents, committees hold public hearings to gather everyone's opinions.
Connecticut has recently made some great strides in manufacturing. Thousands of new manufacturing jobs are expected to be created in the state over the next few years, and the legislature has been doing its part to ensure that our workforce is ready to meet this rising demand.
The House has approved legislation to extend an optional municipal property tax relief program for certain volunteer public safety personnel, to retired volunteer firefighters, paramedics, EMTs and other retired public safety volunteers with at least 25 years of service.
