Dear Neighbor,

On Tuesday, the Judiciary Committee voted to approve legislation to reduce gun violence, including mass shootings, community violence, domestic violence, suicides and accidental shootings.

This week's tragedy in Nashville shows that gun violence continues to plague our country. We have also had a recent spate of gun violence on the streets of our cities here in Connecticut.

HB 6667, An Act Addressing Gun Violence, seeks to tackle the issue in a profound and needed way since the last time we had a serious look at our statutes in the wake of Sandy Hook. 
Connecticut has the resolve and will to implement legislation that respects the rights of law-abiding and responsible Americans but not at the expense of public safety.

HB 6667 contains good, commonsense public policy proposals aimed at preventing terrible tragedies. One incident of gun violence is too many, which is why I am dedicated to curtailing it and working to pass this bill.

Attention parents, teachers, and children of East Windsor, Ellington and Vernon:  I will hold an event with State Representative Jaime Foster will hold an event to discuss two important bills pertaining to our schools and resources for individuals with intellectual disabilities. 

We will talk through the merits of HB 5001 - "An Act Concerning Resources and Support Services For Persons With an Intellectual or Developmental Disability" and HB 5003 - "An Act Concerning Education Funding in Connecticut", as well as explore other ways to help on the state level.
The event will be held on Monday, April 17 at 6:00 pm in the Ellington High School Auditorium. Hope to see you there!
