PA 14-26—SB 113
AN ACT MAKING TECHNICAL CORRECTIONS TO STATUTES CONCERNING HOUSING
SUMMARY: This act makes minor changes to conform to PA 13-234, which transferred the administration of certain housing-related matters from the Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) to the Department of Housing (DOH). Specifically, the act eliminates the requirement that DECD's annual report to the governor and General Assembly summarize its housing development efforts and activities. DOH assumed authority over these functions and must, by law, report on them.
The act also makes the DOH commissioner, rather than the DECD commissioner, responsible for ensuring proper implementation of residential anti-displacement and relocation assistance plans for housing and community development projects that receive state financial assistance. The DECD commissioner remains responsible for ensuring proper implementation of plans for similarly financed economic development projects.
The act also makes technical changes.
EFFECTIVE DATE: October 1, 2014
