     “As a member of the Energy and Environment Committee, I look forward to working with my regional colleagues to ensure that CSG/ERC will focus on the key policy issues that will promote a more competitive and affordable system for Connecticut, as well as the citizens in the 104th district,” Gentile said. 
   “Committee membership also provides a unique networking opportunity for me, to share ideas and insights with my counterparts from throughout the Northeast region and bring test practices and resources to my constituents.”

     CSG/ERC is a non-profit, non-partisan organization, located in New York City since 1937, serves legislative, executive and judicial branch officials in 11 Northeastern states. 
     Their policy staff supports nine areas of concern including Energy and Environment, economic development, transportation and education among others.

     “In this challenging economic climate, it is more important than ever that we receive and share information to promote our regional priorities at the federal level,” Gentile said.

     CSG/ERC’s mission is to promote successful state policy innovations, advocate multijurisdictional problem solving, advocate for regional interests at the federal level, offer leadership training and technical assistance and forecast policy trends that affect the Northeast.

This is press release from Gentile's office.
