Connecticut Special Session Begins Today
The Connecticut General Assembly will convene a special session at 11 a.m. today, June 12, 2012.
House speaker Chris Donovan will not be presiding over the session, instead allowing the house majority leader to handle the leadership responsibilities after Speaker Donovan’s former campaign finance manager was arrested for allegedly conspiring to conceal the source of $20,000 in campaign contributions. The contributions were purportedly linked to a bill imposing taxes on roll-your-own cigarette businesses, which is expected to be voted on during today’s session.
Speaker Donovan does plan to participate in the session.
