    Dodd attending a fundraiser at Norwich Free Academy for the residents of Haiti.In response to the earthquake that ravaged Haiti, Senator Dodd introduces the Haiti Recovery Act to encourage the elimination of Haiti’s remaining debt to international financial institutions and instruct these institutions to offer grants rather than loan assistance to Haiti, in order to end the debt-relief cycle.

    As a result of a Supreme Court ruling that corporations deserve the same free speech protections as individual Americans, enabling them to spend freely from their corporate treasuries on campaign advertising, Senator Dodd introduces a constitutional amendment that would authorize Congress to regulate the raising and spending of money for federal political campaigns, including independent expenditures.
