Chief Justice Reconfirmed, Sentencing Bill Reaches the Senate and OPM Secretary Talks State Agency Budgets on CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review

 

Hartford, CT -- This Friday at 7 p.m., Connecticut Network viewers can catch up on reconfirmation process for the Supreme Court's chief justice on this week's episode of CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review.

                                                     

After passing 35 to 0 in the Senate, the confirmation of Chief Justice Chase Rogers reached the floor of the House of Representatives on Wednesday.  The debate, culminating in a 139-6 vote in favor of reconfirming the chief justice, included one legislator's explanation behind her "no" vote.    One flight up in the Capitol, the State Senate voted on proposed legislation prompted by recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings regarding lengthy prison sentences for young offenders.

 

On Tuesday, OPM Secretary Ben Barnes testified before the Appropriations Committee to present his recommendations on addressing state agency budget deficiencies, while the Finance, Revenue & Bonding Committee heard testimony  throughout the week on bills concerning the new minor league baseball stadium in Hartford, and a proposed tax on prescribed narcotics.  Meanwhile, Governor Dannel Malloy commemorated this week's observance of Earth Day with an executive order to create a council on Climate Change, and on Thursday welcomed other New England governors to a regional energy summit in Hartford.

 

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.
