Today, conversations with Connecticut’s top two lawmakers - Senate President Don Williams and House Speaker Brendan Sharkey - about two big issues: Freedom of Information and taxes.
Williams has announced his retirement after 20 years in the legislature after this session ends. We talk about his tenure, which included the aftermath of the scandal that sent Governor John Rowland to jail. And about his testimony over proposed legislation that would limit access to public records.
Meanwhile, his House counterpart, Sharkey, is just getting started with his career as Speaker of the House. Among his goals - big tax reform in the state, including a new conversation with the state’s non-profits about taxes.
