CT lawmakers manage to fix loophole in campaign finance laws
Lawmakers in Hartford ended the shortest legislative session ever just before the midnight deadline Wednesday.
Before ending the 2006 session, lawmakers managed to fix a loophole in the state?s campaign finance laws as well as pass a $16 billion budget and a $2 billion transportation bill. State Rep. Chris Caruso (D-Bridgeport) says closing the campaign finance loophole is a big win for Connecticut.
Some issues still remained unresolved this session. Those issues include rising energy prices, the state?s car tax, inheritance tax and eminent domain reform. Another big issue that wasn?t dealt with was a bill to force Catholic hospitals to give out the controversial ?morning-after pill.?
