Senator Chris Murphy
Waterbury will receive more than $3 million U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds to protect children and families from the dangers of lead-based paints and other residential health and safety hazards.
HUD Secretary Julian Castro announced the funding this week. It is part of the agency’s mission to help children and families secure quality housing by protecting them from home health hazards including lead paint. “Every family deserves to live in a safe and healthy home where they can see their children thrive and excel,” Castro said. “A healthy home is vital to the American Dream.”
The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee announced that U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) will chair the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on European Affairs. The subcommittee oversees matters concerning European nations, and focuses on issues related to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the European Union and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. Murphy released the following statement on his chairmanship:
"I’m proud to be a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and I’m honored to be named chairman of the Subcommittee on European Affairs. The United States and the European Union have the largest bilateral trade relationship in the world, and this subcommittee will provide me with opportunities to strengthen this transatlantic relationship. Europe and the United States represent nearly half of the world’s gross domestic product, and nearly one third of the world’s trade. However, there are remaining obstacles to trade that must be removed so that our partnership can be even more robust.
