Lamont, Legislators Agree on July Agenda; It Doesn’t Include Housing Segregation

By Jacqueline Rabe Thomas and Mark Pazniokas

A broadening coalition of affordable-housing advocates gathered outside the State Capitol today to insist that the time has come to tackle housing segregation in Connecticut. But that time will not be this month.

After meeting with legislative leaders, Gov. Ned Lamont said he intends call the legislature into special session to focus on police accountability, the wider use of absentee ballots in November as a temporary COVID-19 safety measure, cost controls on insulin and a continuation of telemedicine begun during the pandemic.

The governor’s public comments confirm what legislative leaders have been saying privately for weeks: the July special session would have a substantive, though narrow agenda. The issue of housing segregation was not raised by legislative leaders, though a second special session in September is under discussion, Lamont said.

Lamont said he intends to issue his formal call for a special session on Friday, the same day the legislature is expected to hold a virtual public hearing on police accountability — the most immediate issue raised by the death of George Floyd in the custody of Minneapolis police.
