FAIRFIELD –  State Senator Tony Hwang (R-28) and State Rep. Brenda Kupchick (R-132) hosted a Sep. 18 public forum at the McKinley School Cafeteria to discuss recent changes to the state’s 8-30g affordable housing law and next steps for Fairfield’s Affordable Housing Commission.

Sen. Hwang, who serves as Co-Chair of the General Assembly’s Housing Committee, and Rep. Kupchick, who is the lead House Republican on the Housing Committee, were integral in the bipartisan negotiations to craft the new law which gives towns like Fairfield more incentives to achieve a moratorium on affordable housing.

The new law makes several critical reforms to restore the ability of many communities throughout Connecticut to make comprehensive zoning and planning decisions.
