From State Rep. Steve Staftsrom:
Black Rock NRZ President Scott Burns and former president Joe Ianniello came to the Capitol today to testify in favor of H.B. 5283 which would provide legal defense and indemnify to residents who volunteer to serve on neighborhood revitalization zone committees.
This is an important bill to encourage service on NRZ boards and to allow NRZ’s to continue the important work they do to encourage positive development in Bridgeport and revitalization of our neighborhoods. Thanks also to my Delegation colleagues for their support in getting the bill raised. Senator Marilyn Moore; Senator Ed Gomes; State Representative Jack Hennessy; State Representative Christopher Rosario; State Representative Ezequiel Santiago; State Representative Andre Baker; State Representative Charlie Stallworth.
