    1992: Dodd leads the successful fight in Congress to reverse the Bush Administration’s proposal to terminate the Seawolf submarine built by Electric Boat in Groton, Connecticut. He secures funding for a second submarine, plus $550 million that could be applied towards construction of a third boat, thereby saving up to 22,000 jobs at Electric Boat as well as thousands of jobs at dozens of Seawolf subcontractors around the state.

    Dodd authors the Child Abuse, Domestic Violence, Adoption and Family Services Act of 1992, which becomes law on May 28.
