November 16, 2012, New Haven, CT – Nearly 100 people came to celebrate 40 Years of Action for Clean Water, making our 2nd annual event an outstanding success.
“I’m overwhelmed by the turn-out” said Anne Hulick, Co-Director of the Connecticut office. “It reinforces our belief in the work we do and the value we add to the lives of Connecticut residents.”

State legislators voted to continue oil conservation in the June 12th special legislative session
After months of uncertainty, the Connecticut General Assembly just voted during a special legislative session to continue energy conservation programs for oil customers! We were pleased by bipartisan support for these provisions during the debate, and expect the governor to sign this bill into law shortly. We couldn’t have done this without you! Thanks so much.

CSHC State Legislative Session Wrap Up:
Unfortunately, the Connecticut Legislative Session ended without a victory for protecting CT citizens from chemicals of high concern. Our Coalition members, activists and canvassers worked tirelessly until the end to get our priority bill-Senate Bill 274 An Act Concerning Chemicals of Concern to Children passed. Despite having support in both the Senate and House, the bill did not get called. Our other bill An Act Requiring the Labeling of Food Packaging Containing Bisphenol A also was not called. This was, in part, due to many other bills like Education Reform, Death Penalty repeal, Sunday sales etc taking priority. We also faced very significant opposition by the Toy Industry Association who lobbied every day to oppose SB 274.
