Legislative Leaders Postpone Public Hearings Next Week | Rules Change to Allow Call-In Voting for Committees

Democratic and Republican legislative leaders announced that public hearings are being postponed for the week of March 16, and an agreed upon rules change will allow for “call-in” voting for committees.

In a joint statement, Speaker of the House Joe Aresimowicz, Senate President Martin M. Looney, House Majority Leader Matt Ritter, Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff, House Minority Leader Themis Klarides, and Senate Minority Leader Len Fasano said,

“In light of the governor’s recent emergency declarations, we decided to take further action here at the Capitol to protect the public. These steps include postponing all public hearings for the week beginning March 16. The public’s health and well-being is our number one priority, and we appreciate the understanding and flexibility of the people of Connecticut while we as a state work to prepare and protect our communities.”
