Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will host a talk with her longtime friend and colleague Rep. Rosa DeLauro during a visit to Gateway Community College in New Haven.
Pelosi and DeLauro, who represents Connecticut's third Congressional district, will speak at 9:30 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 14, at the school, located at 20 Church St., New Haven, confirmed college officials.
The two, who have worked together in the U.S. House of Representatives since 1999, will discuss equal pay.
DeLauro, who introduced the Paycheck Fairness Act legislation passed in March, has worked to increase penalties for violations of equal pay laws. The legislation is currently stalled in the Senate.
Pelosi’s visit is part of a speaker series for House Democrats around the country.
During her last visit to the state in June, Pelosi spoke at a Connecticut State Democratic fundraiser in Hartford.
