Connecticut authorities want to make sure that the public knows how the millions of dollars donated in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings is being spent.
Consumer Protection Commissioner William Rubenstein says he and Attorney General George Jepsen have written about 70 charities set up after the Newtown shootings, to help reassure the public about their donations. (Click here to see the letter.)
