I have spoken out repeatedly against these outrageous, unaffordable rate hikes, and so can you...this week.
Public comments on the rate hike proposals are being accepted through Friday.
- Send me your comments at Tony.Hwang@cga.ct.gov . Include your name and town.
- Comments can be as brief as you like. (Example: “NO to rate hikes!”)
- I will get them to the State Department of Insurance by close of business Friday.
