A Terrific Turnout at the State Capitol!

March 8, 2018


A bill to prohibit CT public schools from compiling a so-called “Asian Registry” received strong support Thursday during a public hearing at the Legislative Office Building.

Hundreds of CT residents joined my fellow legislators and me to speak in favor of Bill 359.

Our message:

CT government should not mandate that Asian-Pacific American students register their ancestral nation of origin or ethnic background.

Such a mandate would be an invasion of privacy.

I thank Lin Yang, from Woodbridge, CT, for organizing Thursday’s terrific turnout.

I urge you to join us in speaking out.

  1.  Send a brief email and attach as PDF file to EDTestimony@cga.ct.gov saying “YES” to Bill 359.
  2. Reference Bill 359 in the subject line
  3. Copy me at Tony.Hwang@cga.ct.gov / include your name and town
  4. Share this information with friends.

The bill can be read here:  www.cga.ct.gov/2018/TOB/s/pdf/2018SB-00359-R00-SB.pdf

Thank you!
