Senate and House Democrats Unveil Joint Democratic Values Agenda

2018 Democratic Agenda

"This is a strong and progressive agenda that embraces our Democratic values. At our very core, Democrats believe in equal pay for equal work; that no one working full-time should be forced to live in poverty; that health care is a right not a privilege; that women, not the government, can make their own health care decisions; that access to education is critical to growing our economy and students’ futures shouldn’t be consumed by crushing debt; and that we are a stronger state and nation when every vote counts and citizens have access to the ballot box. This is an agenda for the people. This is an agenda for Connecticut.
-- Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney

"If we are going to build a stronger, more prosperous Connecticut for the middle class and our families, we need to invest in our local business, rebuild our infrastructure and train our workers and students for in-demand jobs. While others would have our state retreat and push policies that take our state backwards, this Democratic agenda sends a clear message that Connecticut will continue to lead the way by investing in and building upon our strengths."
-- Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff
