Justice Department Blocks Cigna & Aetna Mega-Mergers

on CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review 

 

Hartford, CT – This Friday at 7 p.m., Connecticut Network viewers will recap a week where the U.S. Justice Department took action to block two insurance mega-mergers involving Connecticut-based companies, the Governor commented on a state-funded mileage tax study, and state ethics officials discussed a conflict of interest complaint against the state's insurance commissioner on the latest episode of CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review.

 

The two proposed mega-mergers involving Cigna and Aetna, two health insurance companies based here in Connecticut, prompted the U.S. Justice Department to file a lawsuit this week designed to block both proposals. Meanwhile, state ethics officials discussed a conflict of interest complaint regarding Connecticut Insurance Commissioner Katharine Wade and her participation in the merger review process involving Cigna, her former employer. Governor Dannel Malloy weighed-in on the Justice Department's lawsuit, as well as criticism about the state participating in a federal pilot program to study the feasibility of implementing a new mileage tax.

 

Capitol Report will also review a progress report on a jobs program for ex-offenders funded though the Governor's Second Chance Society initiative and the Environment Committee's meeting with the DEEP Commissioner on the state budget's impact on state parks and beaches.

 

Capitol Report: Week in Review summarizes the activity at the State Capitol during the week, using voice over and graphics to combine history, context, and next steps in the process with full-length excerpts from the week's proceedings.  The program premieres on CT-N every Friday night at 7:00 p.m., then rebroadcasts at Noon and 7:00 p.m. on Saturdays, 8:00 p.m. on Sundays, and 6:00 a.m. Monday mornings; check CT-N's online program schedule for additional airtimes.  Each episode runs between 30 and 60 minutes.
