Judiciary Committee Votes Yes to Protect Victims of Domestic Violence

The Judiciary Committee of the CT Legislature voted favorably on April 11 to pass SB 650 and HB 6848, two bills that will help protect victims of domestic abuse by removing guns from subjects of temporary restraining orders.

The bills were voted favorably out of committee by a party line vote of 22 to 18.

The next step will be getting a vote of the full membership. We will be sending an alert to contact your legislators when it comes time for that. Hard to tell when the vote will happen – may be soon, could be June.
