Meeting on Bill That Enraged Catholics Is Canceled

Waterbury Republican-American
March 10, 2009

Leaders of The Judiciary Committee of the Connecticut State Legislature have canceled tomorrow's public hearing over a proposed bill that would modify corporate laws relating to religious corporations.

Many area Catholics had planned on attending the meeting at the request of Archbishop Henry J. Mansell of the Archdiocese of Hartford.

Sen. Andrew McDonald, D-Stamford, and Rep. Michael Lawlor, D-East Haven said there are questions about whether the bill is constitutional. Lawmakers are asking Attorney General Richard Blumenthal to examine the statutes before proceeding further.
