For Immediate Release

Senate Republican Leader Kevin Kelly, the Ranking Senator on the legislature’s Higher Education and Employment Advancement Committee, issued the following statement regarding Attorney General William Tong suing Stone Academy and its owner alleging numerous violations of the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act following the abrupt closure of the for-profit nursing school:

“I applaud the Attorney General for going after the bad actor and pursuing justice in this unfortunate situation. Stone Academy did not fulfill its promise to its students, and for that there must be consequences. In the legislature this year, we worked in bipartisan fashion to pass legislation to provide direct relief to former Stone Academy students. We have a nursing shortage, and it is essential that we as elected officials work across multiple branches of government to help these students get their careers back on track and make them whole.”
