Statement from Senate President Martin M. Looney on Appropriations Committee Leadership

Senate President Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven) today released the following statement on Senator Beth Bye’s decision to not seek reappointment as the Senate Chair of the Appropriations Committee.

“As Senate Chair of the Appropriations Committee, Senator Bye was a fierce advocate for improving access to early childhood education, health care, higher education and critical programs that improved outcomes for families across Connecticut,” said Senator Looney (D-New Haven). “Leading the Appropriations Committee takes an incredible amount of time, energy and skill. During difficult budget negotiations Senator Bye never lost sight of the people behind the numbers and how state policy can truly make a difference in the lives our residents. Her continued leadership in the caucus will be invaluable to the Senate.”

Senator Looney will make an announcement regarding Senate committee chairmanships in the near future.
