Sen. Kelly Appointed Top Republican on Three Legislative Committees: Aging, Insurance and Children

January 2, 2019

State Senator Kevin Kelly (R-21) has been appointed the top Republican State Senator on three legislative committees: the Aging Committee, the Insurance and Real Estate Committee, and the Committee on Children.

As Ranking Member of these three committees, Senator Kelly will work with two Democrat Co-Chairs, a Republican Ranking Member from the House of Representatives, and fellow committee members to review and refine legislative proposals before bills are brought before the full General Assembly for consideration.

Senator Kelly has served as a leader on the Aging Committee and Insurance and Real Estate Committee for many years. He looks forward to continuing to lead our state in these areas, and taking on the new task of ranking member on the Committee on Children.

“One of the most important roles of any state lawmaker is to make sure the state lives within its means at the same time we protect the most vulnerable. I have long dedicated myself to helping those who feel they don’t have a voice to be heard at the state Capitol. I remain committed to doing all I can to help seniors access supports to help them age in place, to help people obtain affordable health care, and to ensure our state’s youngest residents have the safety and support they need to grow into successful adults. Our state faces many challenges on the horizon, and we need to be smart about what choices we as a legislature make in the coming months to boost development, create opportunity and protect core services for those most in need,” said Sen. Kelly.

The Connecticut General Assembly convenes on Wednesday, January 9.
