Good News

Here is some good news from Conn.
On June 30, Attorney General Richard Blumenthal of the State of Connecticut called on the Office of State Ethics (OSE) to abandon its lobbying enforcement action against the Diocese of Bridgeport, related to our Diocese’s organization of a rally at the State Capitol and our website communications aimed at opposing Raised Bills 1098 and 899 in the Connecticut General Assembly.

In his opinion, the Attorney General stated that “[t]here is no denying the profound and serious constitutional concerns in enforcing the lobbyist registration laws against the Church under these circumstances.”
