OPA: Legislative Update

Legislative Update

OPA Legislative Update for Friday, June 12, 2015


Hi Everybody,


The OPA legislative website pages—Bill Tracking Report and List of Bills by Topic have been updated.  www.ct.gov/opapd


HB 7061, the State Budget for July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2017 was passed by the House and Senate.  However, legislation to implement the budget was not passed. The legislature is currently in “Special Session” and will convene a House Session and Senate Session to take up bills related to the budget. No date has been set for House and Senate action on budget implementation bills.


The Bill Tracking Report and List of Bills by Topic reflect the bills that have passed the House and Senate, and bills signed by the Governor. Legislation to implement the state budget could impact these bills—the bills could be amended by legislation in the Special Session.


Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
