CGA Looks to Assist Undocumented Students as Casino Expansion Moves Closer to Reality

on CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review

 

Hartford, CT – This Friday at 7 p.m., Connecticut Network viewers will recap a week where bills related to casino expansion, powdered alcohol and in-state tuition for undocumented students were considered by the General Assembly on this week's episode of CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review.

 

Late nights started to become a regular thing at the Capitol this week as legislators in both chambers debated and considered a multitude of bills. In the upper chamber, the State Senate debated revisions to a bill that could lead to a third casino in Connecticut. Late Wednesday night, the Senate passed the revamped bill which aims to curb competition from casinos outside of the state, particularly a casino currently under development in Springfield, MA.

 

In the lower chamber, the House of Representatives spent nearly seven hours discussing a bill that would help undocumented students in Connecticut receive in-state tuition at state colleges and universities. The House also spent time this week considering bills regarding undocumented drivers, powdered alcohol and additions to the public school curriculum.

 

Capitol Report will also go over the fiscal implications of a bill being considered by the CGA's Appropriations Committee that would require law enforcement to serve temporary restraining orders when firearms and ammunition are involved. Outside of the Capitol complex, Governor Dannel Malloy, UConn President Susan Herbst and other dignitaries took part in the official groundbreaking ceremony for the incoming UConn campus in downtown Hartford. The campus, which is moving downtown from nearby West Hartford, is slated to open in fall 2017.

 

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.
