Gov. Malloy, Lawmakers, Working on Campaign Finance Reform

The governor is in negotiations with legislators on a package that would have to be approved in another special session.

 

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is seeking broad campaign finance changes that would strengthen his re-election chances in 2014 and limit the possibilities of secret campaign finance donations.

Malloy and Democratic leaders in the General Assembly are meeting today — Monday, June 25 — to try to hammer out a compromise, according to a report on the Connecticut Mirror. An agreement is looking unlikely, the website report states, because of lingering issues that remain following Malloy's veto last week of a campaign finance disclosure bill.

The campaign finance issue has put Malloy at odds with fellow Democrats in the legislature, similar to the issue some Democrats had with the governor's measures earlier this year. That reform package, one of Malloy's central legislative initiatives, was eventually approved by the legislature earlier this year.

Democrats pass laws to allow unions to force people to join unions against their will and take money out of the paychecks to pay for political activities. Democrats also pass laws allowing unions to enter private property ie a business and recruit for unions, but those same companies cannot express what is in their best interest? That is crony capitalism at its finest.
