Hartford City Council Considering Pay-to-Play Contributions Ban
The Hartford city council is debating a proposal to ban campaign contributions from contractors who have business deals with the city. Proposed more than two years ago, the measure is now moving forward after receiving word from the city’s corporation counsel assuring the legality of such a measure.
There are still details to be determined concerning the measure, including who will be expected to enforce the measure. A vote is expected by the end of March.
