Stratford Eye on the Beltway: Himes on Citizens United Case

And, Blumenthal presents Waterbury with $1 million in EPA funding.


BLUMENTHAL: The senator, along with Rep. Chris Murphy, Waterbury Mayor Neil O’Leary and Nancy Barmakian of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) presented Waterbury with nearly $1 million dollars brownfield funding on Wednesday, according to the Waterbury Observer.

"Curing contamination is critical to making this brownfield site a source of jobs and economic growth, which Waterbury richly needs and deserves,” Blumenthal said.

HIMES: The congressman told the Stamford Advocate on Tuesday that the U.S. Supreme Court's 2010 decision to prohibit restrictions on corporate or union spending for election campaigns is "profoundly damaging." He continued to express his views on his Twitter page:

It's the #Voldemort of SCOTUS decisions“.@DFBayne: @jahimes takes on Citizens United: http://tinyurl.com/6v2gm27 Way to go Jim! #NoSecretMoney

DELAURO: The congresswoman made a statement on Wednesday at a Steering and Policy Committee Hearing on equal pay:

"Some conservatives have called unequal pay 'a myth' and a 'distraction.' It is neither," she said. "Women should be paid the same as men for the same work. That is what Paycheck Fairness is all about—same work, same pay."
