One of the slides from the state Department of Public Health’s presentation at the first meeting of the state’s vaccine task force.

Elderly residents, people of color, tribal communities and residents with underlying medical conditions are among the “critical populations” in Connecticut that could receive priority for a COVID-19 vaccine when the state gets its first shipments, health officials said Thursday.

Leaders of the state Department of Public Health presented a broad overview of their coronavirus vaccine distribution plan – due to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday – to a new panel tasked with advising Gov. Ned Lamont on who should get the first batches of immunizations and how to conduct community outreach.

Governors want sunlight on the secretive ISO New England

ISO keeps your lights on. Just don't ask how.

The CT Mirror

October 15, 2020

Connecticut and four other New England states fired the first salvo Thursday in a campaign to reform the region’s complex wholesale electric market – and the unaccountable and largely opaque governance of its operator, ISO New England.

Gov. Ned Lamont and his counterparts in every New England state except New Hampshire signed onto a statement that was long on ambition and short on specifics, other than promising to deliver “a vision document outlining specific areas for reform” by week’s end.

The multi-state campaign is an expression of mounting and deep-seated frustration over ISO New England policies that state officials say undermine the economic viability of clean-energy sources and drive up transmission costs that are reflected in consumer bills.

ISO, which stands for “independent system operator,” both manages the flow of electricity and sets pricing parameters of a partially deregulated market resulting from state and federal laws in the 1980s and 1990s aimed at promoting competition.
