Devlin wins key CT environment endorsement

State Representative Laura Devlin (R-134) has been endorsed by the bipartisan Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) for reelection on November 8 to the General Assembly’s 134th House district, which includes parts Fairfield and Trumbull.

The CTLCV, a bipartisan, statewide, nonprofit organization, endorses candidates for the state legislature based on their positions and track record on environmental issues. They must be committed to protecting Connecticut’s land, water, air, and wildlife, and to working for sustainable solutions to pressing state issues like transportation, energy, and waste management.

In her first term, Laura Devlin supported many environmental-friendly pieces of legislation, including the State Blue Plan to protect Long Island Sound; a new law to fight littering; a law asking the Connecticut Water Council to submit a state water plan to the legislature for final review and approval.

Laura Devlin also supported, in committee and on the House of Representatives floor, a Constitutional Amendment to Protect State-Owned Open Space property in Connecticut.

Additionally, Laura Devlin has worked the last several years with local Fairfield residents in Greenfield Hill and United Illuminating to ensure any tree trimming does NOT harm the character of the town.

“It was a pleasure meeting with CTLCV and Executive Director Lori Brown recently to talk about the key state environmental issues in our state. CTLCV does an excellent job of helping us make environmental stewardship a legislative priority,” said Devlin. I will continue to support legislation that preserves and protects our environment and our natural resources, while remaining attentive to ensuring that these initiatives are undertaken within a framework of sound fiscal discipline."
