The 2010 Connecticut Environmental Briefing Book is Here!
The Connecticut Environmental Briefing Book was originally produced in 2004 to help legislators learn more about the environmental issues they were being asked to address.
We know that the Briefing Book has proved to be a valuable resource not only for public officials at all levels of government but also for environmental advocates, media and the general public.
If you want to know more about an issue, the Briefing Book is a great place to start.
Please join us in thanking Connecticut Light & Power for funding the printing of the 2010 Briefing Book.
