On Wednesday the legislature approved a deal that will keep manufacturing giant Sikorsky in Connecticut until at least 2032. I supported this deal which will grow jobs and Connecticut's economy, but I also believe we have a responsibility to provide the same enthusiastic support to our small businesses.
I was honored to be presented the 2016 Children’s Champion award by the Connecticut Early Childhood Alliance (CECA) today at the Global Child School, an early childhood school and care center in Stonington.
I recently joined my colleagues on the Children's and Public Health Committees for a joint forum on lead exposure in children. The forum was held to review Connecticut’s current efforts to screen children for lead and the progress made in reducing childhood lead poisoning.
