Gov. Dannel P. Malloy today (June 19) released the following statement regarding signing new campaign finance legislation into law:
“Today, I signed into law a bill (Public Act 13-180) that will vastly increase disclosure requirements for independent campaign expenditures.
As the first candidate for governor elected under the state’s public financing system, I am deeply committed to the principle that the people of Connecticut have a right to know who’s paying for the advertisements and other expenditures that are designed to sway public opinion prior to an election. This bill does that.
