Speaker of the House Chris Donovan is holding the first of five hearings around the state on the impact of the recession on CT families this Saturday, December 5th at 10am at the Legislative Office Building, Room 2C. Policymakers especially want to hear from children and youth about how the recession is affecting them, their families and their communities. The first hour is reserved for youth testimony; grownups to follow. This hearing will focus on the First Congressional District, represented by Congressman John Larson. The hearing is sponsored by the Speaker’s Task Force on Children in the Recession and hosted by the First District Youth Cabinet. For more information, click here.
