State Representative Richard Roy (D-Milford) has been appointed by Speaker of the House Christopher G. Donovan (D-Meriden) to serve on the National Council of State Legislature’s Environment Committee.

The NCSL Environment Committee is one of 12 standing committees of the National Conference of State Legislatures responsible for state and federal natural resources legislation, regulations and policies. Its goal is to educate Congress and federal agencies as to state concerns regarding these issues and serve as a forum for legislators and legislative staff to learn about and share information about options being considered in other states. The NCSL uses these polices as guides to advocate at the national level.

“Few issues are as important to me as the environment” said Rep. Roy. “As a former vice chair of this committee, I look forward a continued exchange of ideas and bringing them back to Connecticut.”

The National Conference of State Legislatures is a bipartisan organization that serves legislators and staffs of all states, commonwealths and territories. NCSL provides research, technical assistance and opportunities for policymakers to exchange ideas on the most pressing state issues and advocate for the interests of states in the American federal system.

“Rep. Roy’s state legislative experience will allow him to represent Connecticut well as he undertakes this exciting challenge,” said Speaker Donovan. “I am confident Rich’s work on this committee will strengthen the work of the NCSL while protecting Connecticut's environmental interest at the national level.”

Rep. Roy is in his 10th term from the 119th District and serves as the House Chairman of the General Assembly’s Environment Committee.
