Attorneys for two children detained in Connecticut after being separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border have asked a judge to order that they be reunited with their families immediately. Dozens of people rallied outside a district courthouse in Bridgeport today in support of the children.
Connecticut now has two new laws that are designed to help the state plan ahead for climate change and the production of clean energy.
At a signing ceremony, Governor Dannel Malloy said the new energy law would require state utilities to increase the percentage of renewable energy in their portfolios from the current 25 percent to 40 percent by 2030. Malloy says this would help boost the state’s economy.
