Opening Day

February 7, 2018

Today marked the Opening Day of the 2018 Legislative Session. In the even years, we convene a short session running from February through May. This means we have a lot of work to fit into the next three months!

Governor Malloy addresses the General Assembly. View his speech here.

It's an honor to serve East Hartford, Manchester, and South Windsor in the General Assembly, and my office is always open to you — during session and year-round. I would love to hear your thoughts on the issues that come before us this session. You can reach me by email or through my office at 860-240-1378. You can also find updates on my work on my legislative webpage.

Additionally, here are some resources that can help you keep track of everything that's happening at the Capitol:

The first is the CGA website, where you can view the General Assembly's schedule of events, stream the House and Senate sessions online via CT-N, or track a bill.

As proposed legislation becomes available, you can track any bill as it makes its way through the legislative process. Visit this website to register as a bill tracking user. Once you are logged in, you will be able to enter the bill number into the system. Whenever a change has been made to the bill's status, you will receive an email informing you of this change.

The OpenConnecticut web site is another great resource, run by the Comptroller's office, that allows residents to track state government’s spending in real time.

Again, don't hesitate to reach out to me on any issue. I look forward to a productive 2018 session!
