We have reached the end of the 2022 Legislative Session! This has been a very productive session and we've passed many critical pieces of legislation to benefit the residents of Connecticut. I'll be sharing session highlights in the coming days and weeks.
After months of negotiation and hearing input from residents across our state, I am happy to pass along great news. On Monday, the House of Representatives passed the state budget proposal which provides $600 million in historic tax relief to meet this moment of need for so many residents in our state.
Connecticut residents deserve clean air, but transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions have contributed to worsening air quality leading to higher rates of illnesses like asthma. Investing and encouraging wide-scale electric vehicle distribution is necessary to reducing these emissions and ultimately, improving air quality. The House just passed the Connecticut Clean Air Act to help the state breathe a little easier.
