Connecticut making progress on road to regionalism

Connecticut is known as the land of steady habits. Who would have thought that “regionalism” would be a popular buzzword as we begin the 2016-2017 legislative session, set to start on Feb. 3? The time to discuss the idea that school districts and municipalities can and should work together to find efficiencies as a way to reduce costs and offer more quality services has finally arrived. This session, be on the lookout for the introduction of multiple bills that would both remove barriers for inter-town collaboration and incentivize towns and schools to work together.
