Monday March 19 was a huge day for Connecticut’s alimony reform movement. Eleven people, many of them members of CTAR, testified movingly before the Joint Committee on the Judiciary, in Hartford, in favor of Raised Bill No. 5509. The day was very long – and stretched well into the night.
The committee did not vote on the bill yet; it has until April 2nd to do that. Between now then, we must contact committee members with our stories, especially where we are constituents, and we must get more alimony payers and their families involved in writing to legislators NOW. This is how a bill becomes a law: citizens take action.
