GOV. MALLOY STATEMENT ON ACCESS TO PUBLIC RECORDS
(HARTFORD, CT) - Governor Dannel P. Malloy tonight made the following statement upon final passage of
Senate Bill 1149
An Act Making Technical Changes to the Statutes Concerning Public Records
"My goal with this legislation was to provide some measure of protection for the families affected by the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School. But the fact is, all families have a right to grieve in private. Those who lose loved ones to violence have a right to protect themselves against further anguish.
"This is a difficult issue, requiring all of us to balance deeply held beliefs and important public policy values. I commend the legislators on coming to an agreement that respects the privacy of grieving families."
