Legislative Updates & Monitored Bills

CTAA Advocates for You!
Advocacy is at the heart of CTAA's core mission - to educate, ADVOCATE and communicate with our members.  The Government Relations Committee monitors the state legislature and tracks issues that may affect the industry and our membership.  Our Action Alerts, communication, and partnership with NAA help to make our members aware of hot button issues.  We lobby on behalf of our membership, and the industry as a whole. See our monitored bills below. 

2022 Legislative Updates

The 2022 CT legislative session began on Wednesday, 2/9/22. This is a short session that will conclude in May 2022.  We continue to monitor many proposals at the legislature that will impact our industry. 

In January, the GRC held the first annual legislative breakfast, bringing together legislators and property owners to discuss issues that are important to our industry. We had great dialogue and several key takeaways, which will be communicated to the association over the coming weeks.  State Representatives Jill Barry, Cara Pavalock-D’amato, Craig Fishbein, and Mike France were in attendance. From the CTAA, Lobbyist John Bailey, President, Kelly Dematteo, Lifetime Board Member, Robert Chesson, and GRC Chair Steve Weir, as well as owners or senior management from Konover Residential, Lexington Properties, Paredim Communities, Parkville Management, Trio Properties, & Winn Residential.

Calling all Volunteers

The GRC is looking for members to join this great committee. If you have ever wondered how laws are made, what happens at the Capitol, how those laws affect our industry, or if you have a passion for making a significant impact on our industry, this is the committee for you!  Please reach out to committee Chair Steve Weir at 860.918.0721 or sweir@1callair.com.

We encourage CTAA members to reach out to the GRC and "Tell us your story.” Recently we heard from a member about the rise in car thefts and vandalism at their properties.  It is not an isolated event, and with information like that, we can develop a call to action.
