Connecticut legislators defeat campaign finance legislation for referendum groups
By Kyle Maichle
The only bill that was considered was House Bill 5322. The bill would have changed the minimum registration and reporting threshold for groups in support or opposition of a referendum. Under current law, the minimum registration and reporting requirement for a referendum group is if a group spends or receives $1,000 or more. The bill would increase the minimum registration threshold to $2,000.
