Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Thank you for your support. It is has been an honor to represent you in the General Assembly for another term. There have been many intensely debated issues this legislative session and it has been a privilege to represent the people of New Britain in each of those discussions.
Connecticut’s economy continues to recover and looking back at the 2015 legislative session I am proud of the steps the legislature took to grow our state’s economy. We supported the successful Small Business Express Program and made historic investments in transforming our state’s transportation system.
We continue to improve our education system by providing additional aid to English Language Learners and students with learning disabilities like dyslexia. We also took significant steps to lower the cost of higher education by becoming the first state in the country to establish a Student Loan Bill of Rights.
Additionally, we stood up for our seniors by passing many more laws to protect them from potential abuse. We have expanded the definition of neglect to include elderly people who do not live alone but are mistreated by a caretaker and now require the Department of Social Services to notify a nursing home resident’s designee within 24 hours if abuse is suspected.
I hope you find this information helpful. As always, please do not hesitate to call my office if you have any questions.
Rep. Robert Sanchez
