AN ACT CONCERNING THE LEGISLATIVE COMMISSIONERS' RECOMMENDATIONS FOR TECHNICAL REVISIONS TO THE GOVERNMENT ADMINISTRATION AND ELECTIONS STATUTES.

SUMMARY:

This bill makes technical changes to government administration and election statutes. In two instances, it conforms current law to PA 11-173, which eliminated the authority of legislative bodies in towns with two voting districts to elect two registrars of voters per district (except when the top two vote-getters are not major party candidates, in which case a town may elect more than two) ( 7 and 8).

EFFECTIVE DATE: Upon passage, except for the technical changes 5 and 6 and the provisions on registrars of voters, which are effective July 1, 2012.
