OLR Bill Analysis

sSB 427

AN ACT CONCERNING THE MEMBERSHIP OF THE COMMISSION OF PHARMACY AND VALIDATING A REFERENDUM.

SUMMARY:

This bill increases, from six to seven, the Commission on Pharmacy's membership by adding a fifth pharmacist. It specifies that the commission must include one pharmacist from an independent retail setting and one from a chain retail setting.

The bill also validates an East Hartford bonding referendum held on November 8, 2011 that was otherwise valid but for the town's failure to properly publish notice in a newspaper with general circulation in the town. It also validates, as of the date taken, all otherwise valid acts, votes, and proceedings of East Hartford officers and officials pertaining to or relying on the referendum. In the referendum, voters approved a $ 7 million appropriation and bond authorization for the town's flood control system.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2012 for the Commission on Pharmacy and upon passage for the referendum validation.
