About Scott

State Senator L. Scott Frantz is in his fifth term in the General Assembly where he represents the 36th Senatorial District, which includes the communities of Greenwich, New Canaan and Stamford.

Senator Frantz has been named the Deputy Senate Republican Majority Leader of the Senate Republican Caucus.

As the Senate Republican Co-Chair of the Commerce and Finance Committees, Senator Frantz continues to contribute to ongoing efforts to help Connecticut businesses succeed, protect jobs, promote employment and balance state budgets. Getting Connecticut’s fiscal house in order remains one of his largest priorities.

During the 2015 Legislative Session Senator Frantz championed a number of policy changes of which Emily’s Law is the one he is the most proud. The law, named after Emily Fedorko, raises the minimum towing age to 16 while requiring the training of all new boaters in proper towing techniques. Emily died in a tubing accident in August 2014. Senator Frantz joined the Fedorko family in supporting this legislation which will in turn help support the mission of the Emily Catherine Fedorko Foundation to better educate boaters and promote overall safety awareness in what will hopefully become a model law for the entire country.

Senator Frantz is a business entrepreneur with a long history of service and commitment to his community. Following his election to the General Assembly, Senator Frantz stepped down from his five-year post as Chairman of the Connecticut Development Authority, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Bradley International Airport, and as Chairman of the Connecticut Brownfields Redevelopment Authority.
