Westporter’s Photo Back in ‘Aid-in-Dying” Capitol Display

A large photo of Westport’s Bill Meyer, along with 30 or so photos of other people who support “aid-in-dying” legislation, is going up again today on the wall of the tunnel between the state Capitol and the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.

The photos were removed abruptly on Feb. 7—a week before they were scheduled to come down—after a complaint from House Minority Leader Larry Cafero (R-Norwalk). He told the Office of Legislative Management he thought it was inappropriate for the public space inside the Capitol complex.

The display’s return comes after the American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut raised constitutional questions about its removal. The display had been mounted by the ‘“aid-in-dying” advocacy group Compassion & Choices.

Cafero said he thought it improper to have a display directly advocating for a piece of legislation during a legislative session. “In my 22 years here, I’d never seen anything like that before,” he told the Hartford Courant. The corridor usually has noncontroversial displays not directly related to legislation.
