Clean Money Comes To Conneticut!

Conn. Governor Signs Campaign Finance Bill

Gov. M. Jodi Rell, flanked by a bipartisan group of state lawmakers, signed legislation Wednesday that imposes strict limits on campaign contributions and establishes a voluntary publicly funded election system.

The legislation is aimed at renewing confidence in the state's leadership after a corruption scandal that sent former Gov. John G. Rowland to prison....

Democratic House Speaker James Amann said Connecticut is "a national model for campaign finance reform."

"What a day," he said.

The law bans contributions from lobbyists and state contractors, and establishes a voluntary public financing system. It takes effect Dec. 31, 2006.

This is great news.
Clean Money campaigns are underway in many states today.
Clean Money, Clean Elections
