HARTFORD, Conn. — Connecticut lawmakers voted Wednesday to again extend Gov. Ned Lamont’s emergency declarations first issued in March 2020 during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, though some lawmakers argued it’s time to get back to normal.
The House of Representatives and Senate passed separate resolutions during Wednesday’s special session.
The resolution in the House passed on a 73-56 vote. In the Senate, the resolution passed on a 19-15 vote.
The governor asked the General Assembly to renew his declarations of public health and civil preparedness emergencies through Sept. 30.
