May Minutes: (May 10, 2013/Chester Village West)
Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman prefaced her remarks by stating that people in Hartford “Count on Larry for everything”. She said people may not like some of what happens, but that in the end most are focused on the same goals, pointing out that, “The Governor proposes, the Legislature disposes….” is how the process works. Touching on specific topics, she noted that with 7,000 veterans returning to CT next year, businesses will be offered up to $900/month to support hiring them to transfer their skills to employment opportunities. CT needs more engineering and bioscience entrants to employment, for which the Governor’s goals include education and jobs initiatives. A member noted that CT’s role in Health Care initiatives had earned applause in her recent lobbying efforts in Washington. With Wyman’s broad background and knowledge, she covered many other issues and addressed issues from members.
