After the state House of Representatives met Oct. 3 to consider overriding the veto of the GOP-backed budget, the Republicans refused to call the question for a vote.

To move Connecticut forward, we need to adopt a spending package that invests in our workforce, makes long-term structural changes, and provides municipalities with additional budget flexibility.

Thank you to those who took time to answer my online survey on the implementation of tolls and the legalization of marijuana. I wanted to share the results with you and here they are!
