Appointed Chair of Environment Committee

January 11, 2017

I'm honored to announce that I have been appointed chair of the legislature’s Environment Committee. 

The Environment Committee handles all matters relating to the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, including conservation, recreation, pollution control, fisheries and game, state parks and forests, water resources and flood and erosion control. It is also the committee of cognizance for all matters relating to the Department of Agriculture, including farming, dairy products and domestic animals.

I know that Farmington residents value conservation and the preservation of Connecticut’s environment. From local agriculture to our state parks, I will work to preserve the environmental resources from which we all benefit.

You can learn more about the Environment Committee on the committee webpage.
