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.)

They want to know how much money has been donated, how much has been spent,  and what services have been provided.  They set a deadline of April 18th for the voluntary responses,  which they plan to post on their websites. (Click here to see the list of charities.)
