The Branch Political Action Committee is not your typical Political Action Committee (PAC). Most PACs in the US are organizations formed to raise money privately to influence elections or legislation, especially at the federal level. Our Political Action Committee focuses on bills in the Connecticut Legislature of most concern to our large Northeast Connecticut membership. We do not donate to political campaigns. We work to educate our members and the public on political topics.
