Sen. Kissel Attempts to Strengthen CT Public Safety Policy

May 19, 2021


Kissel, an Enfield Republican who has served on the judiciary committee for 27 years, said he had concerns about the rules for convicted criminals seeking employment or housing in a rental property.

He later offered an amendment to strike second-degree stalking, a Class A misdemeanor, from the crimes that could be erased.

His amendment, like others, was defeated.

“I don’t want to be stalked,’’ Kissel said.

“Stalking is a scary thing.’’
