Connecticut House of Representatives Overturns Veto, Preserves Citizens' Election Program
The Connecticut Mirror reports that the Connecticut House of Representatives has voted to override Gov. Rell's (R) veto of legislation that would preserve the Citizens' Election Program for the 2010 election cycle. The state Senate had previously voted to override the veto last week. The override ensures that limited public financing will be available for the gubernatorial general election. â€œToday, the Legislature saw fit to preserve a system that gives candidates who arenâ€™t wealthy a chance to compete and the ability to run a campaign that isn't funded by corporate and special interests,â€ Democratic gubernatorial candidate Dan Malloy said in a statement emailed to reporters.
