State Representative Anne Dauphinais (R-44) announced today that she and other legislators will be participating in a rally on Thursday, September 3rd. The Return the Voice to the People Rally is being held in direct response to Governor Ned Lamont extending his executive powers through February 9, 2021. The current executive order that was in place since March was set to expire on September 9th before yesterday’s decision on an extension that goes into the 2021 Legislative Session.
“Under these executive orders, the impacts are far and wide. Landlords are losing significant income on their rental properties, business owners struggling and closing, others have been not allowed to reopen. One person should not and cannot have the sole power to make these decisions on our behalf,'” Rep. Dauphinais said.
The announcement, which came Tuesday, has been met with widespread criticism from lawmakers, business owners, and residents across Connecticut.
