Please vote on Question 2 on Nov. 6 to protect public lands in Connecticut.

Your Vote Counts!
Question 2 will appear on the November 6th ballot, its addition to the ballot was passed with bipartisan support by the General Assembly. The question has to do with the General Assembly’s long-standing practice of transferring public lands during the regular session with just a majority vote in each legislative chamber and without a public hearing.

The ballot question (Question 2) asks whether you would like to amend the state constitution to require that when a piece of public land (e.g. State Parks, Forests, Wildlife Management Areas) is being considered for transfer or sale by the General Assembly there must 1) be a public hearing and after that public hearing is held 2) a vote of two thirds by both the House and the Senate.
