Connecticut Audubon Society has been expressing its opposition to Governor Malloy’s proposal to sweep funds from the Community Investment Act in op-eds published throughout the state. We urge you to contact your state Senator and Representative and send this message:

Because of the reasons explained in Connecticut Audubon Society’s recently published op-ed, we urge you to oppose Governor Malloy’s proposal to sweep funds from the Community Investment Act and to express your opposition to the leadership of your House.

You can learn how to contact your representative here. Here is the version of the op-ed that was published in the Connecticut Post, Danbury News Times, Stamford Advocate and Greenwich Time. Read more…
