Senate President Pro Tempore Looney Hails House Vote to Confirm Justice McDonald as Chief Justice, Promises Up or Down Senate Vote Before the End of the Month

Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven) today hailed the House of Representative’s bipartisan vote to confirm Associate Justice Andrew McDonald as Chief Justice of the Connecticut State Supreme Court.

“I commend the House of Representatives for approving the nomination of Justice McDonald on a bipartisan vote,” said Senator Looney. “Justice McDonald is a brilliant and thoughtful jurist. The Senate will hold an up or down vote before the end of March. Based on the merits of his nomination, Justice McDonald should be our next Chief Justice. It remains to be seen if the Senate Republicans will choose a partisan path in order to reject this thoroughly qualified and historic nominee.”

Senator Looney will announce a session date in the coming days.
