Stamford legislator to serve third term as General Bonding Subcommittee House Chair
HARTFORD – House of Representatives Speaker-designate Matt Ritter and Majority Leader Jason Rojas have reappointed Rep. Patricia Billie Miller (D-Stamford) as House Chair of the General Bonding Subcommittee of Finance, Revenue and Bonding.
“Pat has the experience and knowledge to ensure the state is responsible with its credit card,” Speaker-designate Ritter said. “Bonding is a key element in Connecticut’s fiscal picture – especially with interest rates at historic lows – Connecticut can invest in capital projects that create jobs and spur growth.”
“I would like to thank Speaker-designate Ritter and Majority Leader Rojas for reappointing me as House Chair of the General Bonding Subcommittee for a third term,” said Rep. Miller. “The coronavirus has impacted housing, jobs, the economy, education and much more. I look forward to carefully using bonding dollars to help Connecticut residents in these areas while at the same time spurring economic growth.”
Majority Leader Rojas said, “Rep. Miller has been an incredible leader on state bonding. She understands the importance of maintaining our capital infrastructure and digs deep into the many requests she receives to best determine what has to be a priority now and what may need to wait. Her expertise is unmatched.”
Rep. Miller, a Stamford native, was first elected to the Connecticut General Assembly in 2008 to represent Stamford’s 145th Assembly District.
She has previously served as a Deputy Speaker of the House.
