Duff and Looney Statements on House Raising the Minimum Wage

HARTFORD, CT (May 9, 2019) - Today, Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven) and Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) released the following statements in reaction to the Connecticut House of Representatives passing House Bill 5004, An Act Increasing the Minimum Fair Wage:

“I want to thank Speaker Joe Aresimowicz, Majority Leader Matt Ritter, and Chairwoman Robyn Porter for their tremendous work during the overnight debate on raising the minimum wage," said Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney. "The Speaker and Majority Leader worked with all willing and reasonable groups looking to give working people a fair raise. And the entire state owes Robyn Porter a debt of gratitude for her determination and stamina to debate and answer questions throughout the night in order to benefit the over 330,000 Connecticut residents that will receive more money in their paycheck.”

“The debate on the minimum wage took all night but the result was well worth the wait,” said Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk). “Hundreds of thousands of working people in Connecticut are now one step closer to receiving a much deserved and long overdue raise. Thank you Speaker Joe Aresimowicz, Majority Leader Matt Ritter, and Chairwoman Robyn Porter for your leadership and tireless effort in getting this bill passed.”
