Connecticut schools may soon be required to test their drinking water and report their findings, according to a new House bill that is currently being considered.
If the bill passes, schools will need to review their water supplies and equipment and report the results to state agencies.
The goal of the bill is to improve the quality of drinking water in schools and ensure that every student has access to safe and clean water.
The legislation would also enable schools to apply for grant funding to make any necessary changes.
Representative Jeff Curry, the chair of the education committee, supports the bill and hopes it will reveal which schools need better systems to provide clean water for their students.
Parents, like Eric Sword, also support the bill and believe that clean water is essential for the health of their children.
As the bill moves through the Capitol, updates on its status will be provided.
