Connecticut's veterans and active military personnel deserve our support and appreciation. From guaranteeing in-state tuition for CT veterans to creating a new local-option property tax exemption, House Democrats continue to support laws that will benefit this important community.

Thank you to all those who have served and continue to serve our country and state.
