Gov. Ned Lamont issued a proclamation this evening for the General Assembly begin a special session next week.
Lamont's proclamation calls on the General Assembly to expand absentee balloting for the August primary and November general election, as well as to enact law enforcement accountability legislation.
He also wants lawmakers to tackle telehealth and diabetes treatment topics.
“COVID-19 has interrupted nearly all state business, and as we continue to navigate this pandemic there are several urgent items that we need to consider in order to move our state forward,” Lamont said. “Taking up these topics makes an awful lot of sense in this current environment, and through my discussions with legislative leaders I am glad that we’ve reached a consensus on the importance of tackling these issues and getting them done now.”
