State lawmakers continue to wrestle with the state's campaign finance reform law.
In a special session held on Thursday, the Democratic-controlled Senate overturned Gov. M. Jodi Rell's veto of the bill that aims to fix legal problems with the state's campaign finance law.
It raises the amount of public funding a gubernatorial candidate can receive from $3 million to $6 million.
A federal appeals court determined that part of the law is unconstitutional because it allows candidates to receive additional matching if they're facing well-financed opponents.
Rell has said the state can't afford to increase the grants.
State leaders are set to meet on Aug. 13 to take up the motion to override.
