Notable Bills Passed During Wednesday's SessionMay 3, 2023
I just wanted to share with you a few bills of note that we passed during Wednesday's House session.
• The House proved its commitment to all CT mothers having access to specialized lactation healthcare. HB 6819 will require the DPH to provide a full list of international board-certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs) in the state on its website and will establish a taskforce to study licensure.
• The House approved HB 6632, which opens previously closed avenues for local housing authorities' housing units.
• The House also approved HB 6689 to make a career in health care a realistic option for more CT students. The Nursing and Mental Health Care Professionals Loan Subsidy Program will mean lower interest rates for students looking to go into health and mental health care.
