Environment, Energy and Land Use Legislative Update

April 20, 2009

The 2009 JF deadline has passed. Most of the surviving bills have been assigned file numbers and the remaining bills should have files within the next two weeks. Bills that have not been reported to the House or Senate are dead. To view the text of a bill, its fiscal note or its bill analysis select the “File No.” link to the right of the bill in the table below. The table below contains a select list of bills of interest; it is not an exhaustive list of bills.

The next step in the process for most of the bills listed below is either (1) referral back out to committees that the bills should have visited during the committee process, but did not; or (2) action by the respective chambers. To view the latest action for a bill select the “Bill Status” link to the right of the bill in the table below. To check on whether the House or Senate is ready to vote on a bill, first refer to the House or Senate Calendar to see if the bill is double-starred (marked “XX”); bills with only one “X” are not ready for action. Next, for House bills, check the “Go List” on session days to see if the bill is scheduled for a vote. The calendars and “Go List” are available on the General Assembly's main webpage: http://www.cga.ct.gov.
