Lawmakers To Forward Gun Violence Proposal

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A bipartisan, legislative working group is planning to finalize its recommendations for law changes addressing gun violence.

Lawmakers were scheduled to meet Tuesday at the Legislative Office Building to discuss which proposals to forward to legislative leaders, who are crafting a final package of changes in response to the Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

Last week, Senate President Donald Williams Jr. called on members of the Bipartisan Task Force on Gun Violence Prevention and Children’s Safety to wrap up their work. Besides gun violence, working groups are offering recommendations on mental health care and school security.

Williams wants legislative leaders to begin their negotiations Tuesday afternoon. He has also called for the full General Assembly to vote on a final package by March 13.
