Sen. Blumenthal, Congresswoman DeLauro reintroduce Debris Act


U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal and officials reintroduced the Debris Act in Hamden on Monday. 

As of now, homeowners are not allowed to receive federal disaster relief aid to remove any fallen trees or debris from their yard.

In an effort to help Connecticut homeowners affected by last year’s tornadoes, Senator Blumenthal and Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro are hoping to lift a ban by re-introducing the Debris Act in Hamden Monday morning.
