The CTSRC testified on behalf of its members about this bill. (See the Legislative/Licensure tab for the full testimony.) This bill contains the language regarding our workforce shortage.  See section 44 beginning on page 77.  This bill has been signed into law by the governor. A lot of work was done by the CTSRC to get us here and there is more work to come as the task force begins its work. The bill can be found by using this link.
