State Senator Dennis Bradley who chairs the Public Safety Committee that’s weighing casino expansion and sports betting, shares his take on the legislative session with Steve Krauchick, host of Doing It Local.
Bradley is among the Democrats pushing back on Governor Ned Lamont’s flagging trucks-only toll legislation. He has a rosy outlook for a casino for Bridgeport run by Connecticut’s two tribal nations. Immunization, a controversial topic this session, is something parents should decide and not forced by government, he says.
The legislature faces an ambitious schedule to get things done in an election year the next 10 weeks.
Bradley has no announced opposition yet. City Councilman Ernie Newton and social justice advocate Kate Rivera are weighing primary challenges.
