Not for long. School financing changes available after request to keep secret

Sen. Andrea Stillman was hoping to keep the changes her panel is considering on how schools are financed a secret.

“Let’s keep it just between us for now,” the task force co-chairwoman told the panel after a list was distributed to them during a public meeting at the Legislative Office Building Thursday.

When asked for copies of the handout, committee staff said they had been directed not to provide the information to the public, press or lobbyists.

The Connecticut Mirror was able to obtain a copy from a source. Here is a copy of the changes the committee plans to narrow down and is considering approving at their next meeting.
