A.G. Appeals CCJEF Decision, Insurance Commish Recuses Herself,

& the Return of Bar Cars on CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review

 

Hartford, CT – This Friday at 7 p.m., Connecticut Network viewers will recap the action taken by the Attorney General in regard to the recent CCJEF decision, the Insurance Commissioner's decision to recuse herself from her department's mega-merger review, and an announcement from the Governor on the return of Metro-North's bar cars on the latest episode of CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review.

 

Following last week's decision in the CCJEF v. Rell education funding trial at Hartford Superior Court, the state's Attorney General George Jepsen announced that he will appeal the ruling to the Connecticut Supreme Court. The appeal comes after Judge Thomas Moukawsher ruled that the state's method in funding education is unconstitutional, thus setting the stage for a court-ordered overhaul of Connecticut's education system. In other news, several new developments affected a state ethics investigation into whether Insurance Commissioner Katharine Wade should recuse herself from the department's review of the Cigna-Anthem mega-merger.

 

Capitol Report will also review a spirited announcement from Governor Dannel Malloy that bar cars will soon be returning to the Metro-North line in New Haven, comments from rail commuters regarding proposed rate hikes, and an update on the state's efforts to prevent children from lead poisoning.

 

Capitol Report: Week in Review summarizes the activity at the State Capitol during the week, using voice over and graphics to combine history, context, and next steps in the process with full-length excerpts from the week's proceedings.  The program premieres on CT-N every Friday night at 7:00 p.m., then rebroadcasts at Noon and 7:00 p.m. on Saturdays, 8:00 p.m. on Sundays, and 6:00 a.m. Monday mornings; check CT-N's online program schedule for additional airtimes.  Each episode runs between 30 and 60 minutes.
