CO-CHAIR OF THE GAE COMMITTEE REP. ED JUTILA TALKS ABOUT A BILL TO CHANGE THE FOIA AS IT RELATES TO ARREST RECORDS
The Government Administration and Elections Committee voted 9-6 Monday in favor of a bill written to nullify a Connecticut Supreme Court decision allowing police to withhold arrest information until criminal prosecutions are completed.

The bill is the committee’s effort to change the state’s Freedom of Information Act to better balance the public’s right to know against prosecutorial and privacy concerns. Rep. Ed Jutila, committee co-chair said he has a strong public safety background, growing up as a fireman and building a rapport with those in law enforcement — some of whom he considers his best friends.
