Growing Connecticut Jobs

There s no greater priority for Connecticut than growing and retaining high-quality jobs. During the past several years, Senate Democrats played a critical role in helping to pass legislation to do just that.

  • We passed new legislation that now imposes fines and penalties for reckless motorists who seriously injure or kill pedestrians and other users of public way. These “vulnerable users” include pedestrians, highway workers, cyclists, a person operating an agricultural tractor or farm implement, a blind person and his or her service animal, and others.

    This year we passed a 10-year plan to provide 50,000 children with high-quality early education and set the state on a path toward universal pre-K. Competitive funding to achieve this goal will son be available for our cities and towns.

  • Electric Customer’s
    Bill of Rights

With this legislation we created greater transparency and increased protections for residential consumers by requiring electricity suppliers to provide very clear and specific information about how much they are being charged for electricity.
