State Lawmakers Explore What Can Be Done About Youths Stealing Cars Across the State

State legislators from both parties recently started more active discussions on what can be done about youths stealing cars across the state, a problem that’s festered for years. In a related development, state Rep. Terrie Wood told constituents Thursday afternoon that she’s joined other lawmakers in petitioning for a special session of the state Legislature to address the problem. The recent death of a runner in New Britain, reportedly struck by a stolen car driven by a 17-year-old with a long criminal history, prompted a GOP news conference on the problem Wednesday morning, and then the meeting of lawmakers from both sides of the aisle that afternoon, according to a report Thursday on the CT News Junkie website. The report also said: “A bipartisan group of lawmakers emerged from a closed-door meeting at the state Capitol Wednesday with plans to pursue policies aimed at reducing youth crime including giving judges more information on the criminal records of repeat offenders.” The Democratic and Republican lawmakers said they “identified some limited common ground,” as the article described it.
