Private corporations win right to deny contraception coverage to their employees. http://ow.ly/yCiMl
WASHINGTON – To opponents of the Affordable Care Act, it’s a political victory, but to Connecticut women’s rights groups and its Democratic politicians, the Supreme Court decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby will erode a woman's right to contraception.

We’ve asked our audience to offer feedback. Now, we’re hoping you can take a few minutes to answer a simple 12-question survey. Thank you!
Over the last few months, we’ve asked our audience to offer feedback so we can improve your experience whenever you visit ctmirror.org. The digital focus groups were successful. Now, we’re hoping you can take a few minutes to answer a simple 12-question survey.

It was not coincidence that brought U.S. Dept. of Transportation chief Anthony Foxx to Hartford last week. It was more like lobbying. http://ow.ly/ySmQe

Nobody's perfect, but the Teacher's Retirement Board was only off by one-fifth of 1 percent, it says:
http://ow.ly/yCxKk
The state failed to deliver teacher pension funds over the past decade to just 15 of more than 7,800 beneficiaries – a failure rate of less than one-fifth of 1 percent, according to an interim report filed Monday.

In this go-round, Foley, McKinney differ little, except maybe on highway tolls. http://ow.ly/yvbmQ
Republican gubernatorial contenders Tom Foley and John McKinney found more common ground than points of contention Thursday night as they squared off for the first time in a campaign forum.

The Official CT Mirror Google+ Page - To Inform and Engage One Connecticut With Journalism That Digs Deeper
Introduction

In 2009, a small group of Connecticut residents, concerned about the decline in watchdog journalism, formed the Connecticut News Project, Inc.

A few months later, after securing start-up funding and hiring some veteran journalists, CNP launched The Connecticut Mirror, a nonprofit, nonpartisan news website with a very clear mission:  Through deep reporting on government policies and politics, to become an invaluable resource for anyone who lives, works or cares about Connecticut, and to hold our policymakers accountable for their decisions and actions.

The Mirror’s small staff consists of award-winning editors and reporters with decades of experience in Connecticut newsrooms or working for other national or state news operations. We are the only state news organization with a full-time reporter in Washington, D.C.

More than 5,000 stories later, we start our fourth year with a still powerful sense of our mission.
