New Laws Effective In October

October 5, 2016

The Hartford Courant recently ran an article highlighting nine of these important new laws.

The article calls attention to one of our top priorities this session — increasing access to life-saving naloxone in response to the growing opioid public health crisis.

Other laws taking effect address priorities such as:

  • Protecting Victims of Domestic Violence
  • Medical Marijuana for Children
  • Experimental Drugs for Terminally ill Patients
  • Animal Rights
  • Controlling Dangerous ATV and Mini-Motorcycle Use

I hope you'll take a look at the Courant article to learn more about the work we've done this session. You can also find all of the laws passed this year on the General Assembly website.
