Connecticut Voices for Children released a new report, “2023 Legislative Summary.” The document provides a high-level review of the bills our organization supported this session. While a number of other bills passed both chambers of the General Assembly, and countless others were proposed, it’s important to note that this document only includes the bills that we submitted testimony on during the public hearing process and/or tracked from the beginning to the end. Each section enumerates these bills in numerical order, starting with House bills then Senate bills. Lastly, we want to acknowledge that our successes are a result of deep community partnership with values-aligned people, organizations and coalitions who showed up every week in myriad ways this legislative session. Although there are too many to name—you know who you are—THANK YOU.
