An act prohibiting the distribution of unsolicited marketing flyers to homes stalled in the General Assembly.  It was aimed at preventing litter and the blockage of catch basins, while also limiting sales solicitations.  Danbury Representative Ken Gucker advocated for the bill.  A similar proposal is being considered by the Danbury City Council.  They were looking into whether the City's current litter ordinance is strong enough or if a new law is needed.  The group wants an ordinance worded in a way that the penalty for disobeying it will act as a preventative measure to offenders.  Some Council members are concerned that unsolicited materials are a blight issue, others see it as an environmental concern.  Council President Joe Cavo says there should be a new ordinance that addresses the willful throwing out of paper items from cars on to the streets.
