We can celebrate the passage of legislation in the recently concluded session, some after years of effort while I am disappointed that certain bills would have to start over next year.
Wallingford’s legislative delegation worked together to restore Wallingford’s water line reimbursement costs. This was held up after the town completed the work to supply water to homes on South Broad Street after the state’s grant deadline.
The legislature on June 5, 2019 finally ratified the State Water Plan, a technical and policy document 4 years in the making and 18 years in the planning since the legislature first required a water plan in 2001.
Hard-working families in Connecticut got a boost today with Gov. Lamont signing legislation to increase the state’s minimum wage. I believe anyone working a full-time job should earn enough to support themselves and their family. This legislation is a step in the right direction.
