CCS Legislative Update, Schedule of Events





Governors Bills


 
HB-5054 AN ACT PROTECTING VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.    Malloy Tries A Second Time To Limit Access To Firearms For Subjects of Temporary Restraining Orders

SB-20  AN ACT CONCERNING CARRYING A FIREARM WHILE INTOXICATED OR UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL

DEEP Bills Proposed

Addition of a Trout Stamp to the existing statute authorizing other stamps. and which would authorize the institution of a license fee for seniors for anyone who turns 65 after January 1, 2017. The Trout Stamp proposal would first have to adopt regulations (mandatory since there will be several options and a DEEP Regulation Hearing) on the cost of the stamp and how it would be administered, so no immediate sportsmen cost or budgetary impact. The license fee for seniors would be modest: $5 for an inland license, $7 for all waters. By statute, the additional revenues generated by these initiatives, if passed, would pass through the General Fund to DEEP to support the fisheries program.  Raised Bills:  Since this is a short session, contact by lobbyists and legislators is done personally with committee chairmen to get bills raised for Public Hearings (not through printed Proposed bills). These proposal are then considered to be placed on an Raised Bill agenda with no guarantee that will happen based upon content & committee priorities. Once Raised, a statutory language bill will be numbered & published.
