State Representative Joe Gresko (D)
You may have heard last week that my $2.5 million bonding request for groundwater and soil remediation at the Raymark superfund site was added to the State Bond Commission’s meeting agenda. Earlier today, the Commission held its meeting to vote on the allocation of the requested funds for our community and it was approved.
As House Chair of the Environment Committee, which has cognizance over the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, I fought hard to have this funding included in the bonding committee’s agenda. This project has been a long and sometimes frustrating journey, but it is the right thing to do to protect our residents and our environment.
If you are interested in what the bonding process looks like, or just want to hear the votes, you can watch a replay of the meeting on CT-N.
As always, please feel free to reach out to me at the Capitol at 800-842-8267 or email me at Joseph.Gresko@cga.ct.gov.
