CT Attorney General Richard Blumenthal on a previous Where We Live episode: Photo by Chion WolfCT Attorney General Richard Blumenthal on a previous Where We Live episode: Photo by Chion Wolf New York State officials say they are rejecting the controversial Broadwater Liquified Natural Gas Terminal proposed for Long Island Sound. The terminal was hailed by the energy industry as a way to drive down the price of energy in the Northeast, but environmentalists, state's rights advocates, and a broad, bi-partisan coalition of lawmakers have lobbied hard against the plan.

After many delays, including the resignation of New York's Governor, the state of New York has made up it's mind to turn down Broadwater. Now, a legal battle may loom. We'll talk to Connecticut's Attorney General and a New York resident who's actively opposed the plant.

We'll also talk state politics. Partisan politics are holding up an ethics bill to revoke the pensions of corrupt state officials. The threat of "home invasions" has Governor Rell looking at tougher sentencing laws, and lawmakers are looking to toughen rules for teen drivers.

Our panel of state capitol reporters, Sue Haigh of the Associated Press, Chris Keating of the Hartford Courant, and Christine Stuart of ctnewsjunkie.com will join us.
