Looney Responds to Reports of House Republican Filibuster on Cannabis


HARTFORD - Today, Senate President Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven) released the following statement responding to recent announcements that House Republicans plan to filibuster the cannabis legalization bill which passed the Senate and the need for the House of Representatives to call a vote today:

“We are disappointed the House Republicans are denying a vote on the cannabis bill. I am proud of the candid, straightforward, and purposeful debate the Senate held earlier this week on cannabis and the House should do the same today. Our state deserves to know where their elected representatives stand and threats of filibuster and partisan games should not get in the way of one of the most important issues of the year.”
