Smoke and haze

Max Schulte

Air quality alerts are in effect in Connecticut and New York due to smoke and haze from wildfires in Canada. Connecticut's legislative session ends tonight. Settlement funds from JUUL will go to Connecticut’s behavioral health organizations. And the New York legislature goes back and forth on several bills related to voting.

You can check the air quality in your zip code at airnow.gov.
