AN ACT CONCERNING THE APPOINTMENT OF ASSISTANT REGISTRARS OF VITAL STATISTICS

SUMMARY This act eliminates the statutory cap on the number of assistant registrars of vital statistics a town's elected, appointed, or ex-officio registrar of vital statistics may appoint. Prior law allowed up to four such appointments per town. By law, assistant registrars may exercise the same powers and duties as the registrar.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 1, 2017
