CT News Junkie | Some Winners and Losers
Shocked when they learned that there was no state agency responsible for power plant safety in Connecticut, the legislature failed to pass a bill that would have bolstered plant oversight. The bill introduced in response to the Super Bowl Sunday explosion of the Kleen Energy plant in Middletown failed to even be called for a vote as lawmakers sped to the finish line last week. It’s likely an amendment regarding workers compensation is what killed the mostly bipartisan bill. The power plant safety bill is just one of many the legislature failed to get to Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell’s desk. A bill to regulate hedge ... market research, surveys and trends
The Day - Rell vetoes delay for insurance cooperative | News from ...
Gov. M. Jodi Rell has vetoed a bill that would have postponed a deadline for a municipal insurance purchasing cooperative to erase its $10 million deficit. The Municipal Interlocal Risk Management Agency offers insurance, including workers' compensation coverage, to 65 towns and boards of education across Connecticut, but has struggled with deficits since its inception in 2002. The legislature voted overwhelmingly this session to grant MIRMA a reprieve by postponing a deadline by which the organization is currently required to come into compliance with state insurance regulations requiring such cooperatives to maintain ... market research, surveys and trends


The Day - Secret poll designed to help Rell in budget fight | News ...
A secret opinion poll conducted last spring for Gov. M. Jodi Rell shows the Republican governor was carefully considering how a battle with Democrats over the state budget could damage, or perhaps enhance, her standing with the public, newly disclosed documents from the University of Connecticut show. The poll results and accompanying correspondence, obtained by The Day from UConn through the Freedom of Information Act, shed new light on the governor's use of public-opinion data to position her administration in the fight with Democrats over the $8.5 billion budget deficit last spring. The records also revive unresolved ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Project Delays Hit $12 Billion Level | Hartford Business
Approximately $12 billion in short and long-term “have-to-do” highway, bridge and public transit projects in Connecticut will not go forward because they lack funding, at least in the foreseeable future, state officials said. The state Department of Transportation has outlined in a five-year capital plan hundreds of short-term projects, most of which were originally scheduled to be completed by 2014, and two dozen long-term projects that don’t have financing sources for at least the next five years. The DOT anticipates receiving $4.6 billion in state and federal infrastructure funding from 2010 to 2014, but ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
State Lags In Spending Energy Cash
The goal is to use federal dollars to create jobs and boost business. But Connecticut’s execution is lagging and criticism is mounting. Those in Connecticut hoping the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act would stimulate an economy that was in immediate dire need 18 months ago are left asking what’s gone wrong. Poor execution of the ARRA initiatives — particularly those relating to energy programs — leaves the state far behind the pace to meet its 2012 deadlines. But state officials predict better performance — and more measurable impacts — over the next two quarters. If the pace doesn’t ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
State's Sales Tax Holiday Continues To Be A Success
The third week of August is an early holiday present to the tune of $3.5 million for back-to-school shoppers from the State of Connecticut. Approximtately $58 million in clothing and footwear were sold tax-free in Connecticut last week. Now in its 11th year, the popular program has kept an estimated $40 million out of state coffers and in the hands of consumers. Thomas J. Fiori, fiscal and policy section director with the state Office of Policy and Management, said the $40 million is just an estimate because "we do not have any exact data on what is foregone." State budget officials derived the original estimate by segmenting ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
