Top Senate Republican On Vaccine Hearing, Governor's Budget

Feb 17, 2021

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.
