The huge threshold for third party candidates to get public financing is one of the major sticking points with the bill so far. Apparently former Gov. Lowell Weicker was on WTIC-AM today saying he'd join a lawsuit against that provision, which would have made his 1990 gubernatorial run much more difficult.
This needs to get fixed next February. It should be priority #1. Priority #2 should be the union and party leadership loopholes.
I'm still glad the bill passed, but changes must be made before it goes into effect for the 2008 election cycle.
