Governor Lamont requests extension of emergency orders


Gov. Ned Lamont is asking the state legislature to extend some of his emergency powers which expire on February 15th.
Those emergency powers come with a list of 11 executive orders lamont wants the legislature to uphold including:
-an order allowing cities and towns to implement their own mask mandates
-an order allowing the commissioner of education to issue guidance for schools including social distancing and mandatory masks
House Minority Leader Vincent Candelora hopes the legislature will debate requiring school children to wear masks in school.
That decision is ultimately up to the state legislature.
There is one order the state is dropping, the vaccine requirement for state workers.
