CTAAs Summary of SB 998

In February 2023, the GRC held the second 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, Steve Weir, Lucy Dathan, Francis Cooly, and Jack Fazzino were in attendance. From the CTAA, Lobbyist John Bailey, Members of our Board of Directors, as well as owners or senior management from Konover Residential, Lexington Properties, Paredim Communities, Jones Street, Trio Properties, Cushman and Wakefield & Winn Residential. This year we were please to introduce members from HBRA, CCOPO, and CTPOA as we show a clear alliance in advocacy efforts. See more of that event here.
