Bills Proposed By Lawmakers Representing East Lyme, Old Lyme, and Lyme

Find out what State Senators Andrea Stillman (D) and Art Linares (R) and State Representatives Ed Jutila (D) and Marilyn Giuliano (R) are proposing to enact this session.

 

Now that Connecticut's Legislature is back in session, what do our local representatives and senators have in mind? Here's a sampling of a few of the most notable proposals so far. 

East Lyme Rep. Ed Jutila has proposed establishing electronic tolls on the Route 11 extension from Salem to I-95. The tolls would only be located on the newly constructed extension and would be removed when all the bonds issued for the construction have been retired.

Old Lyme/Lyme Rep. Marilyn Giuliano has proposed a bill that would certainly please towns burdened by state mandates. It would require any legislation imposing a mandate on municipalities to be passed by a vote of two-thirds of the members of each chamber of the General Assembly. 

Sen. Andrea Stillman and Giuliano have both proposed a bill that would give water pollution control authorities jurisdiction over septic tanks on private property and that would require easements over such private property to maintain such septic systems.

Newcomer Sen. Art Linares has introduced a number of ambitious bills proposing to eliminate taxes in a variety of ways and to toughen the penalties for vehicular manslaughter and child abuse. He also proposes to create a task force to study shoreline preservation. 

Here's a rundown of all bills introduced so far by Rep. Ed Jutila (East Lyme/Salem); Rep. Marilyn Guiliano (Old Lyme/Lyme); Sen. Andrea Stillman (East Lyme, Old Lyme, Waterford, Montville, New London, Bozrah, Old Saybrook, Salem); and Sen. Art Linares (33rd District, which includes Lyme).
