NEW COMPILATION OF BANKING AND RELATED LAWS
AND BANKING REGULATIONS READY FOR DISTRIBUTION

Last year, this department adopted a new process of compiling both banking and related laws and regulations to ensure access to the most current versions. The department will revise and re-publish these compilations whenever legislative or regulatory changes necessitate a revision. The next revision should be completed following the close of the 1999 Connecticut General Assembly. Please note that our compilation of banking and related laws is not intended to be a substitute for the official General Statutes of Connecticut published by authority of the State of Connecticut nor is our compilation of regulations adopted by the Banking Commissioner intended to be a substitute for the official Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies published by the Commission on Official Legal Publications.

The cost for the combined banking and related laws and banking regulations compilation is $21.00. To obtain an order form, call or E-mail the Government Relations and Communications Office, (860) 240-8170.

If you have access to the Internet's World Wide Web, the department's web site also provides continually updated versions of our banking laws and regulations that can easily be downloaded.
