OLR Bill Analysis
AN ACT CONCERNING PERMITTING ACCOUNTABILITY.
This bill requires all state agencies taking specific types of regulatory actions to cite authority for the action when requested by the person or business affected by the action. The agencies must do this when:
1. acting on an individual's or business's application, petition, or request for a permit, license, approval, or other permission to conduct business or use private property;
2. restricting or imposing conditions on any business activity or use of private property; or
3. bringing an enforcement action, issuing a cease and desist order, or otherwise requesting a stop or change to any business activity or use of private property.
The bill specifies no deadline by which the agencies must respond to the request or consequences for failing to do so.
