Rep. O’Brien


It is with great sorrow that CSFA shares the news of the recent death of State Representative Elaine O’Brien, a resident of Suffield and longtime public servant.

As Vice-Chairman of the Connecticut’s legislative Appropriations Committee, and as a member of the Commerce and Transportation Committees, State Rep. O’Brien was instrumental in the passage of House Bill # 6454 that provides additional protection for Connecticut firefighters working at motor vehicle accident scenes and in fire station work zones. During the 2013 legislative session, House Bill # 6454 became Public Act 13-200 which also doubles the fines for violations in highway construction work zones statewide. For more about State Rep. Elaine O’Brien, please visit her official website.

Also, Governor Malloy has ordered that Connecticut flags be flown at half staff until State Rep. Elaine O’Brien’s interment.
