Promoting the Environment in 2016

The 2016 legislative session began last week and the Environment Committee, on which I serve as Senate Chair, is already hard at work. In our first meeting we made the unanimous, bipartisan decision to have 41 pieces of legislation drafted for consideration. These concepts cover a range of important topics, including the establishment of a program that will stock school cafeterias with food from local farms, and a bill that will strengthen the penalties on any individual convicted of animal cruelty.

There are 12 weeks left in the session, and I will be working to advocate for you, my constituents. You can visit the Environment Committee's website to get up-to-date information on the work we are doing there. If you want to speak to me about the work we are doing throughout the session, please do not hesitate to contact my office. You can reach me by phone at 860-240-0455 or by email through my website.
