Local lawmaker to proposed bill increasing trancparency at UConn

A local lawmaker is looking to increase transparency from the state's flagship university.

 

A hearing officer with the state Freedom of Information Commission has found that University of Connecticut trustees violated the law when they met in private last year to review the school's $1.3 billion proposed budget, and had an obligation to discuss the taxpayer-financed budget in public before its approval. 

 

Danbury state Senator Mike McLachlan plans to introduce legislation requiring UConn to perform its budget deliberations in public.  He says major decisions made in private is a prime example of why taxpayers distrust government. 

 

McLachlan will also submit a bill to forbid the UConn Foundation from awarding speaking fees or any monetary payments to declared political candidates.
