Several new laws will take effect October 1st. An expanded list of those that will take effect on October 1, along with summaries, can be accessed here.
A summary of some new laws include:
Public Act 23-161 expands on Connecticut’s records and financial reports law to address financial exploitation against eligible adults. Qualified designated persons may disclose to the Social Services and Banking commissioners when there’s reasonable cause to suspect financial exploitation or attempted exploitation of a senior citizen. A temporary hold would also be allowed on a disbursement of funds in these cases, with notice to all account holders. The law includes a process to petition such a hold.
Subscription charges are addressed in Public Act 23-191, specifically regulations around automatic renewals on consumer agreements and bills. Your consent would be needed before initially charging your credit card for renewals or continuous services.
