May 8, 2014 —Senate Democratic Leaders praise the State Senate for its approval of a variety of issues aimed at improving the lives of Connecticut residents.

  • 2014 End of Session Report
  • Connecticut
    Smart Start

    This year we passed a 10-year plan to provide 50,000 children with high-quality early education and set the state on a path toward universal pre-K. Competitive funding to achieve this goal will son be available for our cities and towns.

  • We passed new legislation that will impose fines and penalties for reckless motorists who seriously injure or kill pedestrians and other users of public way. These “vulnerable users” include pedestrians, highway workers, cyclists, a person operating an agricultural tractor or farm implement, a blind person and his or her service animal, and others.

  • Electric Customer’s
    Bill of Rights

    Beginning this summer, several changes took place to laws concerning Connecticut’s electricity market. With this legislation we created greater transparency and increased protections for residential consumers by requiring electricity suppliers to provide very clear and specific information about how much they are being charged for electricity.

  • $10.10 - Connecticut's minimum wage comes closer to becoming a living wage
