Thursday, the House was called into session, where we voted on a number of executive and judicial nominations and on a number of bills.
HB 6484 - Horseshoe crabs are ecologically and medically vital. Yesterday we took another step to protect their decimated population.
HB 6354 - A workforce training plan for green jobs is essential to support Connecticut’s greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals. HB 6354 includes several provisions to accomplish those goals and a strategy to market and recruit individuals, especially from underrepresented populations.
HB 6678 - This bill ensures that nursing home organizations statewide are more transparent about their financial situation. Transparency is an important first step toward meaningful elder care reform.
Over the next few weeks, the number of days the House is in session will increase, and votes will start coming fast and furious. I will keep you updated as those votes happen.
I will continue to advocate for the issues most important to the 36th District and to the State of Connecticut. Speaking of which, I wanted to update you on the surveys that many of you returned to my office. We are in the process of assessing and compiling the results and will share them with you shortly.
