Statement on Reapportionment Commission Missing Deadline to Submit Congressional District Maps

December 22, 2021

Senate Republican Leader Kevin Kelly (R-Stratford) released the following statement regarding the bipartisan Reapportionment Commission missing today’s deadline to submit a new proposed map for the state’s five congressional districts:

“This fell apart because our congressional delegation believes it’s an entitled class. They are clearly scared of competition and only want safe districts because what they do in Washington is out of step with CT families.  As a result the people of CT suffer. Congressional Democrats only care about keeping their power. Their failure to reasonably negotiate led to an impasse.  It’s why nothing gets done in Washington and it is unfortunate that this dysfunction is being brought to our state.”
