Connecticut bill back on the agenda

The Connecticut bill is back on the agenda. According to a Hartford Business Journal article, the Connecticut TransAdvocacy Coalition group is now lobbying for a bill about that issue.

According to the HBJ:
The bill first made its way to the state capitol in 2006 and received a public hearing before being successfully passed through the judiciary committee. In 2007, the bill had more success as it passed the state senate but failed to receive a formal vote from state representatives before the 2007 session closed. ...That push will continue later this month as Feb. 20 has been set aside for Trans Educational Forum and Lobby Day at the state capitol. Between 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., the coalition will have a forum at the legislative office building and some of its members will meet with legislators, in addition to rallying.

See here for the history.
