Candidate Louis Bevilacqua has issued the following press release:
Louis Bevilacqua, the candidate for the Connecticut General Assembly from the 123rd district, today pledged to contact the new House leadership on his first day upon taking office, for the purpose of proposing a special task force on regulation revision.
This special working committee will review all current regulations on citizens and business' to review which are outdated, and to recommend a temporary rolling back of such requirements during times of recession, as many mandates were put in place during times of prosperity and are onerous and difficult to comply with during lean times such as Connecticut residents are experiencing.
Part of the motivation for the creation for such a special committee is the absence of a law revision commission, which would have filled some of the needs of government, but that formerly permanent committee has been inactive since Governor Rowland left office. Mr Bevilacqua also suggested that inorder to facilitate the efficiency of commerce (the decline of which adds to the severity of a recession) the Connecticut House of Representatives should also review hiring practices and make it easier for residents to directly seek employment with any firm or company which operates in the State.
"It is one thing to make a healthy person climb a mountain of regulation, it is impossible to require the same person to do the same effort whilst they are terminal. We are defeating our own economic recovery." said Candidate Bevilacqua
"On day one, once we are sworn in underneath the gold leaf of the historic House chamber, I will seek out the caucus leadership of both parties, without illusion and get a commitment from them to move forward with this idea. There really isn't time to waste, and the new legislative session will require the kind of leadership the people need, or else we will muddle through. I look forward to working with the incoming speaker." added Bevilacqua.
