Bond Commission Okays Grants for Bethel and Newtown Projects
Governor Lamont held a bill signing ceremony at the State Capital in Hartford Tuesday to commemorate the adoption of Public Act No. 21-79 – a new law restoring state benefits to Connecticut service members who were denied an honorable discharge due to their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Today I voted against extending Governor Lamont's emergency powers which are set to expire on July 20. I applaud the Governor and his administration for successfully navigating Connecticut through the pandemic, but the 11 orders raised as a reason for extending executive powers can and should be addressed by the legislature.
