Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies

The Secretary of the State’s office is the permanent repository of original filings of Connecticut state agency regulations. By law, the Commission on Official Legal Publications is responsible for compiling and publishing the regulations, first in the Connecticut Law Journal, and later in the compiled Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies. Both these publications are available for purchase from the Commission on Official Legal Publications, 111 Phoenix Avenue, Enfield CT 06082.  Non-circulating copies of the Law Journal and the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies are available for public reference use at Connecticut’s Judicial Branch Law Libraries and at the Connecticut State Library in Hartford.  Additionally, many state agencies have posted copies of their regulations on their agency websites in order to assist the public.  A list of state agency websites is available at www.ct.gov.

Regulations of the Office of the Secretary of the State are posted on this website and are available at the links listed below.

Copies of original state agency regulations on file with the Secretary of the State are available for purchase for $20.00 per filing for plain copies, and $35.00 per filing for certified copies.  Written requests for copies should be submitted to the Legislation and Elections Administration Division, Office of the Secretary of the State, PO Box 150470, Hartford CT 06115-0470

State agencies with questions about the drafting and submission of regulations for legislative approval should visit  the websites of the Legislative Commissioners’ Office and the Legislative Regulation Review Committee.

State agencies may download regulation form R-39 here in Word format or PDF format.  Form R-39 is used to submit a proposed regulation to the Legislative Regulation Review Committee.

LIST OF MEETING AGENDAS FOR STATE AGENCIES

STATE AGENCY FILING REQUIREMENTS FOR MEETINGS NOTICES AND AGENDAS:

Regular Meeting Notices

Each public agency is responsible for filing with the Secretary of the State and posting on such public agency’s Internet web site, the schedule of regular meetings. There is no requirement for the Secretary of the State to post meeting notices. The schedule of regular meetings for the year should be directed to the Legislative and Elections Administration Division, preferably to the LEAD email: LEAD@ct.gov. In the alternative, a hard copy can be delivered or mailed to LEAD Division, Secretary of the State, 30 Trinity Street, PO Box 150470 Hartford CT 06115-0470, or faxed to 860-509-6127, but given the directive from the legislature, P.A. 11-150, which requires each agency to issue recommendations for consolidating and eliminating paper and duplicative reports, we are requesting that notices be delivered electronically if possible.

Regular Agendas

Both the public agency and the Secretary of the State do have a responsibility to electronically post the agenda for regular meetings of every public agency. We would prefer that the agenda be in electronic form directed to LEAD@ct.gov.

Special Meetings


Each public agency is responsible for filing with the Secretary of the State and posting on its web site any special meeting notices. Again, we are requesting that the special meeting notices be in electronic form, directed to LEAD@ct.gov. The special meeting notices are also physically posted in our offices (usually on the bulletin board located on the 3rd floor of 30 Trinity Street).

Regular Minutes

Regular meeting minutes are not filed with the Secretary of the State. The minutes are to be made available and posted on the public agency’s website. Exception to this requirement can be found in C.G.S. §1-210. http://www.cga.ct.gov/current/pub/chap014.htm#Sec1-210.htm
