LISTEN: Congressman Joe Courtney On COVID, Chairmanships And C-130s

Chion Wolf
/
WNPR

Joe Courtney, Connecticut’s 2nd District congressman, has returned to work after a bout with COVID-19. He recently joined All Things Considered, and after he updated us on his condition, Courtney talked about the elevation of his colleague, 3rd District Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, to chair of the House Appropriations Committee.

And he talked policy. Will President Trump veto a pay raise for our troops? What’s holding up coronavirus stimulus money? And why did Connecticut lose out on a new C-130 wing at Bradley Air National Guard Base?

Hear the interview below:

John Henry Smith is Connecticut Public’s host of All Things Considered, its flagship afternoon news program. He's proud to be a part of the team that won a regional Emmy Award for The Vote: A Connecticut Conversation. In his 21st year as a professional broadcaster, he’s covered both news and sports.
