The purpose of this guide is to help the user track the legislation related to gun control and school safety being considered in the January 2013 Connecticut Legislature. While we’ve made every effort to include all gun control related legislation; the Connecticut General Assembly’s web site should always be consulted.
The Connecticut General Assembly’s website is the official site for all legislation, and should always be consulted to determine status and language of the legislation.
As you can see from the tabs, many bills are proposed, few will make it through the entire legislative process. For an explanation of the Connecticut legislative process go to: http://www.cga.ct.gov/hco/eob.htm or http://www.cga.ct.gov/html/bill.pdf
