So, such a measure if approved by the legislature for an amendment question voted by state electors could take years.

  1. I will not address the Tong letter until fully read and understood. However, will there be any question on the November Presidential ballot process that Connecticut citizens will be asked in 2024? If so, where is info, time to learn and prepare to be informed? Time will tell.
