Connecticut State Senate Majority Leader Martin Looney is expected to announce legislation to protect citizens' rights to display religious symbols.

Looney is scheduled to announce the legislation on Tuesday morning, joined by representatives of the Connecticut Regional Office of the Anti-Defamation League.

Barbara Cadranel, who recently settled a case with her condominium association in Stratford, Conn. over the ban on displaying a mezuzah on her apartment's doorpost, will also meet with reporters at the news conference, according to reports.

The California Condominium Association had threatened in a letter to fine Cadranel, who is Jewish, $50 a day until she removed a mezuzah from her doorpost. The condo association's agreement with residents had allowed the display of items on doors but not doorposts, meaning that residents could affix Christmas wreaths and crucifixes to their doors, but Jewish residents could not affix mezuzahs to their doorposts.

The association earlier this month backed off its demand that Cadranel remove her mezuzah and also apologized.
