Both the Bill Tracking Report and List of Bills by Topic have been updated.  Please note that the Judiciary Committee deadline was 5 pm April 13 and many bills did not make it out of committee. However, some of these "dead" bills may resurface as amendments to other bills. OPA has been tracking several bills in the Judiciary Committee and will be watching for amendments that address the issues in the following "dead" bill

SB 1009 AN ACT CONCERNING PERSONS WITH MENTAL DISABILITIES WHO HAVE COURT-APPOINTED CONSERVATORS.

RSB 1027 AN ACT CONCERNING MANAGEMENT OF INDIVIDUALS COMMITTED TO THE PSYCHIATRIC SECURITY REVIEW BOARD.

SB 1111 AN ACT CONCERNING THE DUTIES OF THE COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS AND OPPORTUNITIES AND THE REMOVAL OF THE TERMS "CRIPPLED" AND "DEFECTIVE EYESIGHT" FROM THE GENERAL STATUTES.
