5th District Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty has delivered her final address on the floor of the U.S. House. The 3-term Representative did not seek reelection last month amid a controversy over her handling of an abusive chief of staff. Esty was elected shortly before the shooting at Sandy Hook School and said yesterday that representing those families was an immediate priority. She became a co-chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force. More than a dozen bills authored by Esty have been signed into law during her tenure, including ones to expand STEM education for women and to help veterans. She has not publicly announced her plans for what she will do when she leaves office.
