Lawmakers target campaign finance loophole in Hartford
(05/03/06) HARTFORD ? Lawmakers are tying up loose ends in Hartford as the legislative session prepares to close at midnight.
One measure that has received attention deals with campaign finance reform. Lawmakers are working on a bill that would close loopholes present in a campaign finance law passed last year. The proposal places limits on the amount political action committees can contribute to a campaign. Legislators are working to pass the bill and send it to Governor Jodi Rell (R-CT) for her signature.
In speaking about the legislative session, Rell says she was struck by the lack of partisanship present in Hartford. According to the governor, politics in many cases took a back seat during the session. She says that type of atmosphere will only benefit the people of Connecticut.
