Rep. Rosa DeLauro visited Derby Monday to highlight a federal program that helps more than 3,000 Valley residents pay their heat and electric bills — and a “staggering” request from President Trump to eliminate funding for it in next year’s budget.
“Millions of Americans have raised their voices and called on Congress to defeat the Republican health care bill and today the American people had a victory.”
Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) and Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) on March 13 reintroduced the Healthy Families Act, which would allow workers to accrue up to seven sick days annually, to be used when they or a family member are ill.
“The Child Tax Credit Improvement Act will help millions of families across the United States who are striving to provide the best possible future for their children.”
“My view is this is the greatest economic challenge to face the country today — that there are jobs that just don’t pay enough money,” DeLauro said. “We have a situation where we have seen wages stagnant for the last 30 or so years and what has happened is that families really are struggling today.”
From punishing companies that use off-shore tax shelters and pushing food safety standards to dangling tax credits to those who surrender assault weapons, DeLauro’s agenda has ingratiated her with the 3rd Congressional District.
DeLauro stopped in Ansonia Thursday to announce she plans to introduce legislation that, if passed, would direct federal officials to do a study on whether 14 municipalities should be designated a new “Naugatuck River Valley National Heritage Area.”
Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro spoke Friday morning about the integrity of the election process.
DeLauro wants to expand the benefits that Americans have earned through Social Security, cut taxes for millions of seniors, and ensure the system remains solvent through the end of the century.
DeLauro outlined just how big of an impact this project will have for the City of New Haven. “It transforms the old Route 34 highway into a walkable street grid that connects the downtown, the medical district, the hill, Union Station and, as the Mayor pointed out, 10 acres of developable land.”
