  • This first event was a Wrap Up of the 2017 Regular Session of the CT General Assembly featuring two expert panels. The legislative panel featured members of the Environment Committee to give their perspectives on the session, as well as the intersection of the budget and the bottle bill. Next, an industry panel consisting of key players in the bottle value chain helped to identify what works and what doesn't with CT's existing bottle redemption law.
