Speaker Ritter/Majority Leader Rojas announce Regulation Review Chair

Speaker of the House Matt Ritter (D-Hartford) and House Majority Leader Jason Rojas (D-East Hartford, Manchester) today announced the appointment of Rep. Lucy Dathan (Norwalk, New Canaan) as House Chair of the Regulation Review Committee.

“Lucy will be chairing a truly bipartisan committee - it’s evenly split,” Speaker Ritter said. “This is a committee that does not let party get in the way of policy and that is exactly how Lucy operates.”

“The Regulation Review Committee is tasked with the important role of ensuring the regulations recommended by state agencies are fair and reasonable for Connecticut’s residents – a role I believe Rep. Dathan is well suited for,” Majority Leader Rojas said. “Rep. Dathan has quickly established herself as a capable policy leader who understands governance issues and has a detailed understanding of the state budget and policy design. Her skillset is well-suited for regs review, a critically important step in the policy making process where proper implementation of the law is essential to positive and impactful laws. I’m excited to see her rise into this leadership role.”

“I am grateful to Speaker Ritter and Majority Leader Rojas for having the confidence in me to serve as House Chair of this bipartisan committee,” said Rep. Dathan. “Our best work is done when we set party lines aside and work together on behalf of all Connecticut residents. I am thrilled to take on this new role and look forward to a successful new legislative session.”
