Watch My Opening Day Address

January 5, 2017

Yesterday marked the start of the 2017 Legislative Session in the Connecticut General Assembly.

As the new Senate Republican President Pro Tempore, I had the honor of addressing the state Senate on opening day. Please click below to watch my remarks about this historic year, in which Democrats and Republicans hold an equal number of seats in the chamber.

To read my full address visit:

“We must remember that our voices are strongest when raised together. When all ideas are heard – when all avenues are explored – that is when the best legislation is created. I am proud to serve with each and every one of you and together Democrats and Republicans can surge Connecticut forward.”
