Legislative PRI Committee

PRI Studies
At the beginning of each calendar year, the committee typically selected about a half-dozen new topics for program review studies. Study topics could be state agencies, programs, service systems, or policies and usually originated from the committee or other legislators, but sometimes were proposed by the public or the staff (see PRI study process). During each legislative session, the committee might also raise and report bills based on recommendations from previously completed studies.

Find information about PRI studies using the topic area or year. If you can't find what you need, try the search function (to the left), going through each year, or the other CGA nonpartisan office web sites for research that their staffs have completed (see home page).

Final 2016 Committee Reports Approved at December 7, 2016 Meeting

See information about the fourth 2016 PRI Committee project on the use of the Hartford-Brainard Airport site.
