The CCPG serves as a voice for many individuals and families impacted by gambling related harms. As a result, CCPG plays an active role in ensuring that problem gambling is included as a factor in all debates around gambling and gambling expansion. We also seek to educate about and advocate for policies that will help to reduce the risks to those who may be affected negatively by gambling and provide support, resources and referrals. If you would like to be updated on our work, and potentially help advocate for positive policies, please sign up for our email list here. Also, please follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn or like us on Facebook for other updates, and share our information with your friends and network.
The 2023 Connecticut General Assembly Regular Session will convene on January 4th and will adjourn on June 7th, 2023. The expansion of legalized gambling in Connecticut has had a significant impact on the problem gambling community and we have several legislative proposals that we will be working with legislators on to continue to strengthen our state’s problem gambling safety net. The next few months will be important, as there will be an opportunity to make your voice heard on any proposed legislation. CCPG will provide information to help you get involved and get your message heard. We need to ensure that resources for the prevention and treatment of those adversely affected by gambling related harms, and their families, are a priority.
