Senator Moore Named Senate Chair of Housing Committee, Remains Chair of General Bonding Subcommittee, and Vice Chair of Finance Committee

State Senator Marilyn Moore (D-Bridgeport) has been named Chair of the Housing Committee, which makes laws and policies affecting Connecticut housing programs. Senator Moore will also remain Chair of the General Bonding Subcommittee and Vice Chair of the Finance Committee. Senator Moore also serves as Deputy Senate Pro Tempore.

Senator Moore previously served as Chair of the Human Services Committee for eight years where she oversaw legislation that applied to all matters relating to the Department of Social Services.

“I look forward to serving as Chair of the Housing Committee over the next two legislative sessions,” said Sen. Moore. “I am thankful to Senator Looney for entrusting me to take the lead on legislative matters related to housing in our state. Over the last few years, we have seen the need for affordable housing, the need to protect renters, and to create a more equitable system for owners and renters. I look forward to working on legislation that will lead to impactful change.”

“Senator Moore is known in the General Assembly for her incredible work ethic, diligent advocacy for her constituents, and her unparalleled passion. I trust she will be a great leader of the Housing Committee for this upcoming term,” Senate President Pro Tempore Martin Looney said.

The Housing committee works to evaluate and define all housing options needed for affordable housing throughout Connecticut. During the 2022 legislative session, there were a handful of housing and zoning reform bills that drew attention to issues of affordability in our state. Senator Moore will now oversee and lead discussion over bills being submitted through the Housing Committee.

Senator Moore was first elected in 2014 to serve the 22nd State Senatorial District communities of Trumbull, sections of Bridgeport and Monroe. Sen. Moore has been involved in local and state politics and in 2013, she challenged a six-year incumbent for a State Senate seat and was successful in her bid to represent Trumbull, Bridgeport, and Monroe. She was sworn in on January 7, 2015.

The legislative session begins on the first Wednesday of January 2023.
