Another productive week is now in the books, both legislative bodies passed a great deal of legislation out of their respective chambers. Some of the most notable being the passage of a 'clean-slate' bill, a resolution to amend the state's constitution to allow early voting, and a pedestrian safety bill. The Senate also passed sports betting/online gambling legislation on to Governor Ned Lamont, who signed the bill Thursday, and is now, with both CT tribes, immediately seeking federal approval of necessary amendments.
Regarding COVID-19, the state is now at a 1.06% positivity rate as Connecticut experiences the top vaccination rates in the country. Governor Lamont announced that he is putting an end to the twice-a-week COVID-19 press briefings that started at the beginning of the pandemic 14 months ago. Also as part of opening up Connecticut as we emerge from the pandemic Governor Lamont continued to promote the state’s new summer tourism campaign “Say Yes to Connecticut”. Enjoy the kick-off to the summer season and remember the sacrifices of our veterans and the fallen this Memorial Day.
