Bill tracking toolsJanuary 25, 2019
Since the start of the 2019 General Assembly session more than 1,600 bills have been submitted for possible consideration. Only a fraction of these will come up on the floor of the House and even fewer will actually become law, but as your state representative it is my goal to promote the issues most important to you and your family and to improve the quality of life we’ve grown to expect in Connecticut.
In the coming weeks, General Assembly committees will deliberate over proposed legislation, decide if bills should move forward, hold public hearings to gauge your opinion, and determine final language.
Your participation is always welcome. Here are some resources to help you track what’s happening at the State Capitol:
- CGA website: view the General Assembly's schedule of events, stream the House and Senate sessions online via CT-N, or track a bill.
- Visit this website to register as a bill tracking user to track any bill as it makes its way through the legislative process. Once you are logged in, type the bill number and whenever the bill's status changes, you will receive an email informing you.
- OpenConnecticut: allows residents to track state government’s spending in real time and is operated by the Comptroller's office.
Get involved and play an active role in the legislative process. You'll find it to be a rewarding experience.
