Connecticut state Sen. Will Haskell (D-26) has been named to the Senate Chair of the state\u2019s Higher Education and Employment Advancement Committee for another two year term, the state said. Haskell will continue his work as the leader of the legislative group. He will also continue in his role as Vice Chair of the state\u2019s Government Administration and Elections Committee. "In my first term as Chair of Higher Education, the committee worked hard to move our state forward and plan for the future. Most notably, we created a debt-free community college program so that every Connecticut high school graduate can afford to pursue a degree. I am so grateful Senator Looney and Senator Duff trusted me to continue leading this vital committee," Haskell said. "In the midst of an economic crisis, fighting for higher education and employment opportunities has never been more important. I\u2019m looking forward to what we accomplish in the months ahead.\u201d "In his first term, Senator Haskell found real results for Connecticut college students, also working to revamp and improve employment opportunities in the state," Connecticut state Senators Bob Duff (D-25) and Martin M. Looney (D-11) also said. "We are excited to see how much more he can accomplish with a second term leading the committee," they said.
