July 9, 2017

HARTFORD, Conn. – Today State Senator Kevin Kelly (R-Stratford) released the following statement regarding Governor Malloy’s veto of an affordable housing measure, House Bill 6880, which had overwhelming, bipartisan support in both the Senate and House.

“The affordable housing bill that was passed during this legislative session is a smart piece of legislation that aimed to improve imperfect affordable housing laws which have a negative impact on many of our middle-class communities,” said Sen. Kelly. “It is largely disappointing that the governor has vetoed legislation that has overwhelming support from both sides of the aisle and would provide relief to many hard-working families. I hope in the coming weeks we can work together to take steps to fix these affordable housing laws.”
