Rell, Blumenthal to join fight against FAA flight plan

Local communities fighting the FAA's controversial new flight plan over southwestern Connecticut are getting some high-powered reinforcements.

Governor Jodi Rell and Attorney General Richard Blumenthal will join local leaders Thursday for a news conference at New Canaan Town Hall announcing their partnership.
