Senator Anwar Issues Statement Following Governor Lamont HVAC Upgrade Proposal

Today, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) released the following statement responding to Governor Ned Lamont’s announced proposal for legislation establishing a grant program assisting public school districts in paying for heating, ventilation and cooling and other indoor air quality improvements to school buildings.

“Governor Lamont’s proposal today is encouraging because it shows his commitment and focus to improving air quality in schools across the state, which will lead to better health outcomes for students and faculty alike,” said Sen. Anwar. “Investing in ventilation and HVAC overhauls won’t just make schools safer considering the spread of COVID-19, but will provide better overall air quality as a whole. I am hopeful that this proposal can find support and lead to improved respiratory health in schools around the state.”
