HARTFORD, Conn. – In a data-driven assessment of state government accountability and transparency, Connecticut received a C minus from the Center for Public Integrity.
That’s worse than the B it received from the organization in 2012 — the first time the center did a report. While the two scores are not directly comparable because of changes made to update the project and its methodology, many advocates say the decline is indisputable regardless of the changed methodology.
Connecticut was the third most transparent and accountable state in the nation, but its declining score was mostly attributed to changes made in its landmark public financing program.
