Deficiencies in the press for zoning reform

I’m just an engaged citizen, active in local government, and opposed to state House Bill 6611 and Senate Bill 1024. These are part of a family of bills that aim to desegregate rural Connecticut by assuming significant control of local zoning in the hopes of creating new opportunity for affordable housing. I oppose all of them not because I’m a racist, or because I’m afraid or change resistant, but because these bills will not desegregate and bring increased affordable housing throughout Connecticut as promised.
