Below is a link to the 2019 Public Act Summary Book.

This publication is compiled by non-partisan staff in the Office of Legislative Research.

It contains concise summaries of all public acts passed during the Connecticut General Assembly’s 2019 Regular Session, and one public act passed in the July Special Session.

While I supported many of these public acts, I did not support all of them.

I hope you find this summary interesting and informative.

Please share it with others!
