2014 CT NOW Policy Agenda

2014 CT NOW Policy Agenda

The 2014 legislative session is in full swing, and CT NOW is supporting a broad policy agenda that will positively impact the lives of women in Connecticut. The bills we are following have the potential to do many things – from providing a better response to sexual assaults on college campuses to ensuring that women can retire without financial hardship to preserving female reproductive health services.  Details on the legislation that we are monitoring are included in our bill tracking spreadsheet: 2014 CT NOW Bill Tracking.

CT NOW is particularly proud of our General Assembly for becoming the first state in the nation to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 by 2017. Connecticut’s working residents are now one step closer to earning a livable wage.  For a summary of the bill, please follow this link: http://www.cga.ct.gov/2014/BA/2014SB-00032-R000024-BA.htm.
