Sunset Reviews: Board of Examiners of Embalmers and
Funeral Directors & Regulation of Hearing Aid Dealers
This study reviewed: 1) the Board of Examiners of Embalmers and Funeral Directors, and 2) the regulation of hearing aid dealers, two of 27 state entities and programs set to terminate on July 1, 2013 under Connecticut’s sunset law. Carrying out PRI’s statutory role in assessing performance of and continued need for the entities prior to their sunset date, the current sunset law criteria was applied and compared with Results Based Accountability (RBA) assessment questions. Overall changes to the sunset law to improve its efficiency and effectiveness were considered.


The PRI committee approved the scope of study at its September 27, 2011 meeting. The committee was briefed and a public hearing held on November 14, 2011, and a final report was approved by the committee in February 2012.
