Conn. lawmakers consider loosening tough restriction on crime scene pictures and audio

Some Connecticut lawmakers say they are struggling over whether to support proposed legislation that would limit public access to 911 audio tapes. The legislation would also limit access to crime scene photos and law enforcement audio recordings in homicide cases. However, the proposal is less restrictive than a law that was passed last year in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. Supporters and opponents of the proposal made their case to lawmakers on Monday.
