CONNECT THE DOLLARS PROJECT (CDP) is a collaboration of Common Cause in CT and CT Citizen Action Group to expose attempts to buy our state.
Connecticut super PACs, which can raise and spend unlimited amounts of money to support or oppose electoral candidates, are being used as a tool for a handful of wealthy individuals, lobbying organizations, and businesses to buy our elections to serve their interests. A massive influx of millions of dollars in super PAC donations thus far in 2018 — more than half of it from out-of-state interests — drowns out the voices of Connecticut citizens and candidates, undermines the goals of Connecticut’s strong campaign finance laws, and damages public confidence in the integrity of our election system.

Climate, Consumers and Jobs.
Right now Connecticut faces three challenges: the need to strengthen our economy, the
need to stem the impacts of climate change, and to ensure that consumers are protected.
The good news is that CCAG has a track record of leadership when it comes to tackling
these multi- issue challenges.
The following are some of the issues we are pursuing in addition to our regular agenda as a
part of a special campaign to build on past victories and to reverse harmful decisions made
at the state capitol. Read more here.
The 2018 Connecticut legislative session ended at midnight on May 9th.

CCAG focuses on about a dozen key bills every legislative session. We monitor and comment on many others. Important bills often evolve over multiple legislative sessions.
