Next week, I'll be hosting two "Roundtable with Robyn" events. This is an opportunity for you, my constituents, to let me know what matters to you. What issues do you want me to be working on? Which new laws are affecting your day to day life?
Rep. Robyn Porter joined Gov. Ned Lamont, her legislative colleagues and other officials on Wednesday for the grand opening ceremony of Hamden High STEAM Academy, a collaborative initiative of Hamden Public Schools, Gateway Community College and the New Haven Manufacturing Association.
The Connecticut General Assembly's internship program is now accepting applications! This is a great opportunity for college students from Hamden and New Haven interested in learning about our legislative process and enhancing their career choices.
We’ve been fighting for years to get the legislature to increase Connecticut’s hourly minimum wage and now we’re only one vote away from giving our workers a long-overdue pay raise. Today, after a 15-hour debate that began last night, the House of Representatives voted to approve legislation I introduced that raises the current $10.10 minimum wage over four and a half years to $15 an hour by June 1, 2023.
I wanted to write a quick thank you to those of you who joined me yesterday morning at Fussy Coffee. We had great discussion around Connecticut's economy, paid family and medical leave, regulating marijuana, and other issues.
I am so thankful that my constituents are involved and informed. Democracy would not work without you!
