Hartford Lobby Day

On March 13, 2011, in Announcements, Blog, Frontpage, Lobbying, by NHobbs

The Wednesday after the DREAM Act Rally at City Hall, the Dems traveled to Hartford for their Lobby Day.  The Dems began their day with a kickoff event held in the Senate Majority Caucus Room.  State Senate Majority Leader Martin Looney and State Senator Edith Prague spoke with the Dems about the importance of passing the DREAM Act.  The Dems then presented Senator Looney with signatures in support of the DREAM Act collected from the rally.  From there, the Dems spent the afternoon speaking with legislators about the importance of passing both the DREAM Act and Death Penalty repeal legislation.  It was a fun and successful afternoon; thanks to everyone who came!  For more information check out the YDN article about the Dems Hartford Lobby Day.
