Barack Obama Endorses James Maroney
 

As your State Senator James has:

  • Co-sponsored and developed Senate Bill No. 72 – The bill provides a tax credit to employers who make payments on any of their employees’ student loans from the Connecticut Higher Education Supplemental Loan Authority.
  • Supported veterans as chair of the Veteran’s Affairs Committee – He authored the bill establishing the Military to Machinist Program, which he ensured passed both the Connecticut House and Senate with unanimous approval, before Gov. Lamont signed it into law last August. The bill helps veterans gain the skills needed to secure employment in advanced manufacturing and similar jobs, not only helping veterans in making the transition out of the military but also bolstering Connecticut’s manufacturing industry.
  • He Authored “An Act Concerning Opportunity Zones” – The bill, which Senator Maroney introduced just two weeks into term, worked to increase long-term economic investment across the state and expedite the permitting process for new projects within the state’s opportunity zones. It passed the Senate with unanimous support and was signed into law in June of 2019.
  • He led debate on Senate Bill No. 957, “An Act Concerning Computer Science Instruction in Public Schools.” – This forward thinking law established computer science education as a required subject for all Connecticut schools. It made Connecticut the first state in the country to require that teacher preparation programs offer instruction in how to teach programming and coding while also establishing a specific certification program for computer science teachers.
  • He oversaw the development of Senate Bill No. 832. – Bill No. 832 created an elder abuse registry for Connecticut. The registry established a public database of known offenders who have been convicted of assault or any form of abuse, helping to ensure that the elderly population and disabled adults are cared for and adequately protected from harm.
    He oversaw the passage of “An Act Concerning Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Training and Best Practices. – This act ensures that all healthcare professionals treating adults have proper training to recognize the signs of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. The bill also lays the groundwork for creating programs to care for Connecticut residents living with Alzheimer’s. The bill was passed with unanimous approval from both chambers of the General Assembly.

     

    As your State Senator James will:

    • Work to make Connecticut the most innovative state in the country.
    • Balance the budget responsibly – Fund infrastructure improvements and preserve the safety net while staying within our means.
    • Fight for a world class education – Promote apprenticeships and trade schools to prepare our children for the jobs available today. Ensure access to higher education, so our students are prepared for the jobs of tomorrow. Advocate for continuing education for all, so no one is left behind in our fast-changing economy.
    • Support the middle class – Fight for good jobs that will keep working families from moving out of state and allow our kids to start their careers here.
    • Stop the partisan bickering – Work together to find real solutions to real problems.
