A local lawmaker is calling for the vetting of Syrian refugees coming into the state.  Wilton Representative Gail Lavielle, who once lived in Paris, said if the state can't refuse entry to the refugees, it's the responsibility of the governor to make very clear what the vetting process is. 


Following the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris earlier this month, Lavielle said in an interview with The Hour that the federal government decides whether people can enter the country, and once here can travel freely from state to state. 


Some other Republican lawmakers have questioned if extensive background checks will be conducted and who will be responsible for the related costs.
