Governor Lamont, Senate and House Democrats Announce Plans for Special Session

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont, Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney, Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff, Speaker of the House Joe Aresimowicz, and House Majority Leader Matt Ritter today released the following joint statement announcing plans to convene the Connecticut General Assembly into special session:

“In early January 2020, we will convene a special legislative session to address a bonding bill and a long-term plan for Connecticut’s transportation infrastructure. We are committed to investing in transportation without recklessly raiding the rainy day fund, which will only lead to increased taxes and drastic cuts to education, municipal aid, and other vital state programs and services in the future. Through the Democratic transportation plan, we will not only strengthen our economy but shorten daily commutes and protect the financial future of the state. We also want to provide clarity to Connecticut’s cities and towns that rely on municipal aid and funds contained within the bonding bill. Once the bill is passed, we are committed to scheduling an immediate meeting of the Bond Commission to allocate bonding to cities and towns.”
