Statement by Carol Platt Liebau, president of the Yankee Institute:

“The Yankee Institute firmly believes that transparency is for government and privacy is for people. That’s why we urge lawmakers to vote against HB 5589. With the utmost respect, the Speaker simply misjudges Yankee’s motivations. In an era of intimidation, passing laws that publicize the causes that private citizens support is reckless. What’s more, it threatens to chill free speech at a time when Connecticut needs new voices and fresh thinking more than ever.”
