State Rep. Jonathan Steinberg (D-126) of Westport today testified in favor of his legislation that would amend the state’s affordable housing law to allow towns to expand the criteria they use to contest intrusive affordable housing projects brought by predatory developers.

“Connecticut is in desperate need of more affordable housing,” he told the state legislature’s Housing Committee. “Too many of our teachers, firefighters and others are being priced out of the communities where they work.”
