OLR Bill Analysis

SB 38

AN ACT CONCERNING THE PUBLISHING OF EXECUTIVE ORDERS PROCLAIMING AN EMERGENCY BY THE SECRETARY OF THE STATE.

SUMMARY:

This bill eliminates the requirement that the secretary of the state print and publish in at least one general circulation newspaper per county executive orders that the governor issues after proclaiming a civil preparedness or public health emergency. Instead, it requires her to post these orders on her office's website and print them in the Connecticut Law Journal. The deadline by which she must do this remains the same, that is no later than four days after receiving the governor's order.
