Connecticut's Credit Freeze Law
I got a pleasant surprise this morning listening to Connecticut Public Radio. Back in June, Connecticut governor Jodi Rell signed a law allowing Connecticut consumers to place a temporary freeze on their credit (while they're not using it, so to speak) so I.D. thieves cannot credit cards or other accounts in unsuspecting consumers' names. (I must have missed this news at the time.) The law goes into effect on January 1st, and makes Connecticut only the second state (after California) in which consumers can use this temporary credit freeze to protect themselves.
Another reason to be glad we got rid of former Connecticut governor John Rowland, who is languishing in the hoose-gow at this holiday time.
