I am happy to report that the Children’s Committee got some very important bills done this year. They include banning the sale of e-cigarettes to minors, protecting our kids from concussions, expanding cross reporting of child abuse and animal cruelty, and continuing to work with the Department of Children and Families on placing children with kin rather than institutions.
Along those same lines, Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman is serving as the Co-Chair of the leadership committee for the Children’s Report Card and is helping us get accurate and timely data from our agencies. Please visit our webpage at www.Ctkidsreportcard.org.
The Task Force on Childhood Obesity and the Children’s Mental Health Task Force are meeting regularly and we will have legislation up for discussion in the next session. You can follow our meetings on CT-n. We love questions or comments from constituents!
I will also continue to pursue payment owed to our small businesses by Amistad America.
Please contact me with any questions on the budget or to help you with any issue.
