I hope you can join me and the Alzheimer's Association Connecticut Chapter, at the Branford Road Race on Father's Day in support of Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month.
Our family has some big news we'd like to share in addition to this week's update.
I supported HB 5001 - An Act Concerning Children's Mental Health, a transformative legislation that responds directly to the youth mental health crisis, which has been exacerbated by the impacts of the pandemic, presenting itself in the form of increased rates of depression, suicide and self-harm among adolescents.
To put money back into Connecticut residents' pockets, we recently passed legislation to suspend our state's gas tax and offer free bus service through June 30. The bill also created an additional Sales Tax Free Week happening this Sunday, April 10 through Saturday, April 16. If your kids are home on spring vacation, this is a great opportunity to save on their spring and summer wardrobe!
