Local lawmakers concerned with digital COVID-19 vaccine card app

Two local lawmakers are expressing concern about the digital COVID-19 vaccine card app expected to roll out in Connecticut this week.  New Fairfield Representative Patrick Callahan and Bill Buckbee of New Milford are calling for more transparency in the details about the program.  The legislators were among those to vote against extending Governor Lamont's executive powers and say this is one of the many consequences of allowing the governor to make public policy decisions without the input of the state legislature.  The pair want more information about how individual data will be kept protected from online hackers.  The governor's emergency order powers are set to expire in February of 2022.
