As Chair of the CT Pension Sustainability Commission charged with finding a solution to Connecticut’s biggest budgetary problem – the unfunded state pension liability, I am grateful to Forbes for an article that will contribute to raising awareness of the commission’s work.
I am very pleased to report that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the State of Connecticut was awarded a total of $30,770,000 in Clean Water and Drinking Water grants to finance community-based water infrastructure projects, such as upgrades to municipal sewage plants and public drinking water systems.
As Chair of the Public Health Committee and member of the Energy and Technology Committee of the General Assembly, I am happy to support initiatives that advance the goals of Connecticut Green and Healthy Homes to improve health outcomes and energy efficiency through evidence-based housing interventions.
For the second time in just over six months, I have joined with my legislative colleagues in support of a bipartisan state budget. The agreement came at the end of our 2018 General Assembly session – and prior to the start of the fiscal year beginning July 1.
