CAPITOL POLICE--PARKING REGULATIONS

Limited parking facilities make it impossible to guarantee parking for members of the public attending meetings and functions at the Capitol and LOB. Parking in the garage for the public is on a space-available basis only. Beginning April 11, 2006, access to the lower level of the LOB garage was made available to authorized personnel only. Others are encouraged to use the free visitor parking at Forest Street.

Cars parked in inappropriate areas will be ticketed, and vehicles that present a hazard to public safety will be towed.

There is no parking allowed in the cut out area in front of the LOB. This is a fire lane for emergency vehicles and is also used as a discharge area for students visiting the Capitol. Please do not park in this area even if you are “just running into the building for a minute. ” The 15- minute parking is located on the south side of Armory Road Extension (in front of the Armory park side).

The south and west areas of the Capitol are for reserved parking and for vehicles with a Capitol grounds sticker. A section of the north driveway is reserved for public parking only. Signs clearly identify where the public parking ends and the permit parking begins. Parking regulations will be enforced. Call the Capitol Police at 240-0240 for further information.

ADDITIONAL PARKING

Visitor Parking - The security system limits visitor parking to the first floor of the Legislative Office Garage. Visitors are allowed to pull into the first floor and park in any lined parking spot.  If visitor parking is full, there is additional parking at Forest Street, State Lot C with shuttle buses for visitors running to the LOB after 9: 15 A. M. The Forest Street lot closes at 6: 05 P. M. , and the last shuttle leaves the west side of the LOB at 5: 56 P. M.

NOTES OF INTEREST

^^^^^

REMINDER - NO LOBBYIST $ DURING THE LEGISLATIVE SESSION

The State Elections Enforcement Commission reminds all concerned individuals of the ban on the solicitation and donation of political campaign contributions by registered lobbyists and their affiliated political action committees (PACs). There have been revisions to the laws and are now two different bans that apply to such solicitations and donations: (1) a temporary ban while the General Assembly is in session that applies to all individuals or entities that are registered with the Office of State Ethics as a client lobbyist,” and their affiliated PACs as well as members of their immediate family and (2) a permanent ban that applies to all individuals or entities registered as a “communicator lobbyist,” and their affiliated PACs as well as members of their immediate family. The temporary ban begins from the time the General Assembly convenes in regular session on January 3, 2007 and continues until adjournment sine die on June 6, 2007 as well as to any subsequent special or veto session held during 2007. The permanent ban extends throughout the entire year. Further, candidates for (1) statewide office, (2) General Assembly and (3) political committees that failed to certify to the Secretary of the State that they were “not established (a) for an assembly or senatorial district, (b) by an elected statewide official, a member of the General Assembly or their agent, or (c) in consultation with or at the request or suggestion of any such official, member or their agent, or controlled by such official, member or agent,” are prohibited from receiving such donations or benefiting from such solicitations during the period of the ban. See Sections 1-91(l), (u) and (v), General Statutes, for the definition of “lobbyist,” “client lobbyist” and “communicator lobbyist; ” and Section 9-333l (e), (h) and (i), General Statutes, for the definition of the ban.

The State Elections Enforcement Commission has provided to the President Pro Tempore of the Senate, the Speaker of the House, the Senate Republican Leader, the House Minority Leader, and each statewide officer, a copy of its updated list of “Political Committees Established by or on behalf of a Lobbyist” as well as an updated “Prohibited Recipients List of Political Committees. ” Copies of these lists are available to each legislator through these leaders as well as through the Commission's website located at www. ct. gov/seec/site/. Any questions concerning application of the lobbyist contribution ban or any other provision of the State's campaign financing laws should be directed to the Commission at 860-566-1776, Jeffrey B. Garfield, Executive Director and General Counsel, or toll free outside of the Hartford local calling area at: 1-866-733-2463.
