Connecticut election laws are being reviewed in Legislature
HARTFORD, Connecticut: The Connecticut Legislature is currently debating a bill that would eliminate alleged discriminatory areas of the public funding for state candidates program. The bill, which passed the Joint Government Administration and Elections Committee, was placed in front of the Office of Legislative Research and the Office of Fiscal Analysis. The bill will now be reviewed and recommendations will be made for the wording of the bill.
The official name of the proposal is House Bill 5021. When the measure makes it out of those offices, the measure would return to the Joint Committee, or it would go to the Connecticut House of Representatives floor for further debate on the issue.
