Watch My Recap on Sober Homes Legislation

February 24, 2017

This week was an important step to help those in recovery. Both Mayor Michael Passero and I shared testimony on why it is critical to get legislation passed this session.

I focused on backing critical legislation that I have been championing since the beginning of session.The legislature’s Public Health Committee held public hearings for four bills addressing sober homes, including mine, HB 6255, that were introduced addressing this growing crisis in our communities.

Team work makes the dream work. Both Mayor Michael Passero and I shared testimony on why it is critical these bills pass. It was also an honor to have Director of Human Services Jeanne Milstein, Fire Chief Henry Kydd, and Police Chief Peter Reichard in Hartford to support our testimonies.
