Judiciary Committee Wastes No Time with Fracking and Governor Malloy Announces $1.8 Billion in Infrastructure Upgrades on CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review

 

Hartford, CT – Starting at 7 p.m. Friday, Connecticut Network viewers can catch up on the past week in Connecticut government on CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review. As they enter the final weeks of the 2014 Legislative Session, committees continue to work through the process of considering bills. On Monday, the Judiciary Committee debated and voted on a bill that would ban the storage or disposal of fracking waste within the state. Connecticut is not known for possessing any natural gas or oil reserves, however many are concerned about the potential risks involved with allowing the controversial byproducts of fracking to enter the state. The Committee also used Monday to discuss a bill that would increase the penalties for assailants who participate in the "Knockout Game." If the bill were to pass then participation in the act, which involves randomly assaulting a person in public, would carry a mandatory minimum sentence of two years in prison. 

 

This week's Capitol Report also includes two separate announcements from Governor Dannel Malloy on a cybersecurity strategy for utilities and transportation infrastructure upgrades. On Monday, with the participation of electric utility executives, the Governor released a plan that would better protect state and regional utilities from the dangers of cyber-attacks. The following morning the Governor announced plans for several major transportation projects across the state. The plans, which call for $1.8 billion in spending over a 5 year period, include the widening of I-84 near Waterbury, investments in the state’s rail lines, the replacement of the I-84 viaduct in Hartford and improvements to the Merritt Parkway.

 

Also on the agenda, the Appropriations Committee heard public testimony on a collective bargaining agreement for Personal Care Attendants (PCAs) and the new Commissioner of the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP) Dora Schriro announced a new directive regarding the handling of emergency calls to Connecticut State Police.

 

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.
