Connecticut General Assembly Office of Program Review and Investigations


Legislative PRI Committee

Welcome to the PRI Staff Office Website

The Office of Program Review and Investigations is the nonpartisan staff office that supports the oversight work of the bipartisan Legislative Program Review and Investigations Committee. At the direction of the committee, PRI staff examines state programs and systems to determine efficiency, effectiveness, compliance with legislative purposes, and whether corrective actions, modification, or elimination are necessary.

2016 Legislation from Completed Studies

The Legislative Program Review and Investigations Committee reported out (JF) six bills based on PRI study recommendations to other committees and the floor on March 7, 2016. These studies are: Health Information Privacy at Selected State Agencies (2015), Apprenticeship Programs and Workforce Needs (2015), and Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Advocacy and Assistance (2015). Also reported out was a bill to outlaw drone weaponization, originating from the 2014 PRI study titled Drone Use Regulation.
