Newtown state Rep. suggests middle ground on Gov.'s executive powers

Some state lawmakers are walking a fine line in their opposition to Governor Lamont extending his executive powers related to the pandemic.  Newtown Representative Mitch Bolinsky acknowledged that Connecticut is a leader in beating the curve and was thankful for the governor's actions to help get the state to and maintain an infection rate of under 1-percent.  He's suggesting an alternative to letting the executive authority expire, and to extending it by 5 months.  Bolinsky suggested a 30-day extension of powers to plan specific contingencies, should Connecticut need to react to a resurgence. He urged residents to remain vigilant as the way to prevent a very real threat of a resurgence of the virus.  Bolinsky feels it’s critical that the legislature come together to deliberate, fine-tune and vote on important issues.
