Tune in tomorrow Tuesday January 24th at 10am to watch the CT legislature's Housing Committee in action. We have a long agenda with many bill proposals to be voted on to advance to public hearings. Some of these are dangerous ideas that will further hurt our state's economy and violate our rights as American citizens. I suspect I will be speaking up pretty often. Agenda at this link - www.cga.ct.gov/2023/HSGdata/ca/pdf/2023ca-00124-R001000HSG-ca.pdf 1/24/23 UPDATED with direct video clip. Note that the meeting did not last the full six hours the video says. The meeting was really just under 2 hours. I would

Thanks to Chris Powell for reiterating many of the same points I have been making in the legislature's Housing Committee. Apparently, state lawmakers are fine with providing huge raises and bonuses to parts of the state workforce but think that a 2.5% increase in gross income (not profit since costs are rising) is too much for someone in the private sector. Hopefully, CT residents will wisely reject such a policy and push back on it.

The phrase "elections have consequences" is becoming the understatement of the century. I encourage everyone reading this to begin paying much closer attention to what is happening in their state government. The majority Democrats are not holding back. Whatever moderate forces that used to restrain their desire for a unilateral shift to socialism seem to have failed. Each committee agenda I see seems to be more egregious than the last. Unfortunately, the bills and concepts are cleverly titled to hide what is being done. Here I will share a link to yesterday's Labor committee meeting to share a taste of

(MUST WATCH VIDEO) I continue to receive numerous messages and emails about several proposed laws that are being debated this legislative session. There are two bills that I find particularly distressing. One would cap rental increases for mobile home parks at 2.5% per year and another would cap all rent increases at 3%. These bills have the potential to do great damage to our already ailing state economy and our way of life as Americans. For hundreds of years, it's been understood that in our country, the government should not interfere with private property rights. That may be about to

My Republican colleagues and I unveiled our latest plan to combat soaring electricity rates today. Let’s see if the majority Democrats will work with us to pass it.  Many of these items I have proposed year after year and have fallen on deaf ears. I’m proud to say that I have never voted for a bill that would raise taxes or utility rates on the people I represent. – And I never will. The sad reality is that the people responsible for the situation we are in are the exact people we need to listen to our solution to

The legislature's Housing committee will be meeting this afternoon January 17, 2023 at 3pm to raise "concepts' that will be debated this legislative session.

If you are concerned about protecting your own personal property rights from a government bent on controlling every aspect of our lives, I urge you to tune in today to see what they are up to.

IMPORTANT POLICY ALERT!!! One of the worst bill proposals ever has been sighted in the Housing committee this year, Senate Bill 37 It simply reads "That title 21 of the general statutes be amended to prohibit rent increases that exceed two and one-half per cent on an annual basis for any mobile manufactured home located in a mobile manufactured home park." As the Ranking Senator on the Housing committee, I am also receiving quite a few emails from mobile home unit owners upset about land rents rising and encouraging the passage of this bill. Obviously, I am very sympathetic to
