AN ACT CONCERNING THE PROCESSING OF MUNICIPAL APPLICATIONS FOR STATE PERMITS

SUMMARY: This act requires the environmental protection, public health, and transportation commissioners and the State Traffic Commission, within 60 days after receiving a formal petition, application, or request for a permit from a municipality, to conduct a preliminary review solely to determine if it is acceptable for filing. The official must conduct the review within available appropriations and notify the municipality of the results of the review. The act does not preclude the officials from requesting additional information after sending this notice. It takes priority over laws requiring other procedures.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 1, 2009
