Connecticut House Passes Amended Bill to Move Presidential Primary to April

On Wednesday, May 18, the Connecticut House unanimously (136-0) passed the amended version of HB 6532. The bill originally called for the Nutmeg state presidential primary to be moved from the first Tuesday in February to the first Tuesday in March. Last week, however, amendments were filed in the House to to shift the primary back even further on the 2012 presidential primary calendar, to the last Tuesday in April.

The bill now moves on to the Connecticut Senate and inches the state closer to a proposed regional primary.
