The House of Representatives also passed a number of bills while it was in session on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, including:
✅ HB 5314: Attention consumers! Under HB 5314, which I co-sponsored, businesses will no longer be able to charge your credit card, debit card, or third-party payment account without your consent for automatic renewal or continuous services.
✅ HB 6746: Sadly, wrong-way crashes and deaths have been on the rise in our state. We took action with HB 6746, which I co-sponsored, to help reduce incidents and minimize fatalities.
✅ HB 5902: Food allergies can be life-threatening. As a parent of a child with a peanut and tree nut allergy I was proud to co-sponsor this bill, which establishes standards that restaurants must follow to ensure customers alert staff about their allergies. The bill will also require informational posters to be displayed in restaurants to ensure increased safety and awareness.
✅ HB 6561: Protecting our children is the most important part of youth athletic competition. HB 6561 creates a task force that will study safety measures for all sports.
✅ HB 6622: Keeps our communities safer by changing the certification deadlines for units that serve a municipality and consist solely of constables or resident state troopers. It generally extends the prior deadline for them to be certified for tier one by one year and delays the current deadlines to be certified for tiers two and three each by one year.
✅ Health care providers shouldn’t face out-of-state repercussions for doing what’s legal in Connecticut. HB 6820 protects Connecticut providers performing safe and legal reproductive health care services to those who need it.
✅ Families who are tasked with taking care of loved ones need a lifeline. HB 6677 will require the Department of Social Services to develop a plan that will increase the number of residents eligible to receive adult day services.
