GMO Grass Seed Bill Gets Uprooted and the House Addresses College Sexual Assaults on CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review

 

Hartford, CT – Starting at 7 p.m. tonight, Connecticut Network viewers can catch up on an eventful week in the newest episode of CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review. Within 24 hours of being approved in the Senate, the GMO Grass Seed Bill that was heavily supported by the Senate's Democratic leader, Donald Williams, was dramatically defeated by the House of Representatives by a margin of 66 votes. The bill calls for an outright ban on the sale and use of genetically modified grass seed, which has yet to be put on the market. Prior to the vote, House members on both sides of the aisle voiced their displeasure with being presented a bill that had no public hearings.

 

Another bill voted on by the House this past week, the College Sexual Assault Bill, passed unanimously. The proposal, which aims to reduce the number of sexual assaults on college campuses, was preceded by an hour long examination of the issue by lawmakers who were alarmed by a recent study stating that one in five female college students will be sexually assaulted on campus.

 

This week's Capitol Report also includes an announcement from Democratic legislative leaders on a plan to fund universal preschool in Connecticut, Governor Malloy's agreement to provide federal funding to restore farmland in the state and updates on other bills as they go through the legislative process.

 

Capitol Report: Week in Review summarizes the activity at the State Capitol during the week, using voice over and graphics to combine history, context, and next steps in the process with full-length excerpts from the week's proceedings.  The program premieres on CT-N every Friday night at 7:00 p.m., then rebroadcasts at Noon and 7:00 p.m. on Saturdays, 8:00 p.m. on Sundays, and 6:00 a.m. Monday mornings; check CT-N's online program schedule for additional airtimes.  Each episode runs between 30 and 60 minutes.
