The Connecticut Legislature has passed Senate Bill 379 and sent it to Governor Rell's desk, reports Josh Vincent of the Center for The Study of Economics. SB 379 is a pilot program which can only be used by one municipality in CT - New London.

CSE and the Re-New London Council had put together an impressive coalition of supporters. That included New London's mayor and former mayor, City Council, Landmarks, Main Street, and "Day" newspaper. It also included New Haven's mayor and Hartford's Metro Alliance and Preservation Alliance, plus Stamford's Urban Redevelopment Commission. Additional backers included Connecticut's Conference of Mayors, Forest and Park, Farmland Trust, Homebuilders Assn., and Sierra Club. Further supporting the bill was AFSCME Council 4 and the Farmington River Watershed Assn.
