Epinephrine Measure heads to the Governor for Signing

June 3, 2019

It was thrilling to bring out this bill to the House floor for a vote.Here is pare of the floor debate with my remarks:





  Grateful to my colleague, State Senator Matt Lesser for being the best teammate ever!

Our bill SB 706 passed the house and with the Governor’s signature Connecticut will become the 35th state to have a stock entity epinephrine law!


The legislation would increase access to epinephrine in public places, including theme parks, restaurants, day care centers, and overnight camps. With passage of the bill, Connecticut would join 33 other states and the District of Columbia, that have already passed similar legislation allowing public venues to maintain an epinephrine auto injector supply for anyone having a life threatening allergic reaction.
