Dear Neighbor,

On Wednesday, the House was in session. We had a productive day - several pieces of legislation passed, including a few that I wanted to highlight below:

HB 6689 makes 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.
The House approved HB6632 which opens previously closed avenues for local housing authorities housing units. On to the Senate for consideration.
Diaper insecurity, food insecurity, and housing instability….this bill creates a task force to develop a plan that utilizes Medicaid funding to support these health-related social needs, seek federal approval for services, and report how the proposed coverage will impact current recommendations. 
We passed HB 5575, a necessary measure to ensure the humane treatment of animals in municipal animal shelters. We set municipal regulations establishing guidelines that maintain the health and safety of both the animals and the individuals working in the facilities. 
We will be back in session today starting at 11 am. You can watch along live on CT-N
