CT Legislative Session Vetoed By Virus

From Mark Pazniokas, CT Mirror:

In a nearly empty State Capitol, a tiny band of legislators wearing surgical masks formally ended the 2020 session Wednesday, a concession to custom, calendar and the coronavirus.

“I’ve got to tell you, it’s very eerie to be in this building on the last day of session, and it’s empty,” said Senate Minority Leader Len Fasano, R-North Haven. “This is historic in a number of ways. I don’t know if there has been a legislative session where no bills have been passed.”

The constitutional deadline was midnight, but legislators last met in session on Wednesday, March 11. They left planning to return the following Monday after a deep cleaning of the Capitol and Legislative Office Building.

  1. Well, something good came out of the session. Nothing!
    Of course they all got paid on the taxpayers dime.
    I guess they were considered “essential” employees.

    1. While Bob Walsh applauds the ineffectiveness of the GA dating to March 11, others think it’s a legislative disgrace. Never has the call to action been louder!
      On a local level, Mayor Ganim isn’t giving away snowballs during a blizzard– he’s delivering masks during a pandemic.
