I hope that this email finds you well. The Connecticut General Assembly has been in session since January 5th and is hard at work. This "long" session runs until the second week in June (which differs from a "short" session that goes from February to May). Our primary task is to adopt a 46-billion-dollar biennial state budget.
This session, I am serving as the House Chairman of the Public Safety & Security Committee. We have been working on a package of 38 bills that strengthen the state's Fire Service, EMS, and Policing response to the community.
Since redistricting has brought Ashford, Hampton & a part of Mansfield to the 50th District, I have spent time in those towns talking with community leaders, non-profit organizations, and businesses to understand their challenges and needs better. This is something that I will continue to do.
