CT ERA Government Administration and Elections Public Hearing

March 13, 11:00 am EDT

CT’s Government Administration and Elections Committee to Hold Public Hearing
Wednesday, March 13, 11:00 am ET

Last month, on February 22, the Connecticut Government Administration and Elections Committee (CT GAE), voted to move the CT Green Amendment, or CT Environmental Rights Amendment, forward for a public hearing.

We’ve since learned that the CT GEA Committee will be holding its first public hearing on the amendment, this Wednesday, March 13th at 11:00 am ET!  The Hearing will be held in Room 1A of the CT Legislative Office Building (see directions below), as well as via Zoom and YouTube Live.

The amendment, S.J. No. 193, is first on the agenda and proposes to amend the Connecticut state Constitution to include protections for our environmental rights. This is a massive opportunity to ensure clean water and clean air protections cannot be taken away.

Please make it a point to attend and testify and urge our legislators to support a Green Amendment that preserves our environmental rights for present and future generations (see all instructions below).
