Connecticut State Senator Kevin Kelly at the opening day of the 2021 legislative session.

It was a long night for members of the General Assembly’s Public Health Committee, who conducted a public hearing on vaccine bills that was scheduled to go as long as 24-hours. Republican State Senate Minority Leader Kevin Kelly joins us to talk about the proposals, which would prevent residents from claiming religious objections to school vaccine requirements.

We also discuss Governor Ned Lamont’s 2-year budget proposal. 

Guests:
