State Sen. Tom Gaffey's bills in 2009 (1/4)

And here's the first installment of state Sen. Tom Gaffey's bills that he introduced this year:

HB05917 AN ACT PROHIBITING THE EXPANSION OR CHANGE OF POPULATION AT STATE FACILITIES WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE HOST COMMUNITIES' LEGISLATIVE BODY.
SB00048 AN ACT REQUIRING THE STATE TO USE GENERALLY ACCEPTED ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES (GAAP).
SB00057 AN ACT CONCERNING THE REGIONALIZATION OF CERTAIN SCHOOL DISTRICT OPERATIONS.
SB00058 AN ACT CONCERNING THE REPORTING OF FEDERAL FUNDS IN LOCAL SCHOOL BUDGETS.
SB00059 AN ACT ESTABLISHING A UNIFORM START DATE FOR CONNECTICUT SCHOOLS.

I hope Sen. Gaffey is putting his weight behind SBO0048. Reading the proposed bill... it would have great value by requiring honest accounting in Hartford... unlike what they use now.

How about an act concerning how elected officials should properly keep track of expenses?

I'm not sure you'll be able to build widespread support for your idea.

Next thing you'll be asking for a sentence or two of explanation every time $1 billion gets spent.

How abaout an act concerning a Senator sleeping with another man's wife then charging the husband with threatening an elected official when he was asked to stop. Or perhaps using the GAAP standards for expense acccounting. Lets not forget he was busy being a father to his kids. We see how successful he was with that.
