2024 Legislative Survey

2023 was a great year for you, because the General Assembly cut taxes targeted to working families by over $600 million, and invested in public schools and universities, childcare, and non-profits. 2024 will bring new challenges, and I need your help to know what concerns you the most. This survey is an opportunity to tell me.

One issue will be cleaning the air. Way back in 2004, we committed to reduce air pollution that is making people sick, and increasing greenhouse gasses that lead to climate change. The biggest single source of greenhouse gases are gas-powered motor vehicles. How do we fix this? Car manufacturers are phasing out gas vehicles, with a goal of switching to all electric vehicles (EVs) by 2035. Connecticut must either adopt the California standards or the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards soon. Failure will put us in non-compliance, which means we will face fines, we will have to close down ‘smokestack’ businesses, and still deal with the high costs of sickness and deaths caused by dirty air.

Big oil and its allies are funding lobbying efforts, claiming untruthfully that you would have to give up your fossil fuel cars and trucks. The choices we have include no sales of new gas engine cars starting in 2035. They will not affect used car sales or ownership of your gas driven car.

I’ve asked questions about this effort in this survey, along with other more general questions. Can you help?
