Today I attended a policy convening at the White House on child care with First Lady Dr. Jill Biden and members of the Biden Administration. I am humbled beyond belief for this invitation, where we focused discussion on three major areas: affordability, access, and workforce.
We are working hard to finalize bill language, build consensus to advance important proposals, and craft a budget as the legislative session intensifies. I am also proud to share that after much planning and coordination, this week I hosted a Students → Manufacturers Fair at the Capitol.
I'm thrilled to share that $272,000 in state funds are being awarded to the 104th for the Ansonia Riverwalk! These state funds, administered through the Connecticut Recreational Trail Program, will be used for planning and design on the existing paved trail along the Naugatuck River Greenway.
Please stop by for an in-person Community Coffee Event tomorrow from 8 a.m. - 9 a.m. in the back room of the Valley Diner, 636 New Haven Ave, Derby. Please join the conversation and share your thoughts, ask questions, and provide feedback on state policies currently under consideration by the legislature.
