The 2019 Connecticut legislative session is set to convene on January 9, 2019, and is projected to adjourn by June 5, 2019.
Odd Year Session: Enactment of Bills
Prior to the opening of the odd-year session and for a limited time thereafter (as specified in the joint rules), members and members-elect of the General Assembly may file proposed bills and resolutions in the house in which they serve.
Proposed bills are not written in full statutory language. Rather, they state briefly (usually in a single paragraph), the substance of the proposed legislation in informal, non-statutory language. Only a committee may introduce bills written in formal statutory language. After the public hearing, the committee meets to decide upon its action on the bill.
Upon a favorable vote, the bill must be first reviewed by the Legislative Commissioners' Office and approved by a Legislative Commissioner before being sent to the house in which it was introduced. When passed by both houses, the bill is delivered to the Legislative Commissioners' Office for engrossing and supervision of printing in its final form. The bill is transmitted by the Clerks to the Secretary of the State who presents it to the Governor for his approval or veto.
