The Connecticut General Assembly works on a two year cycle and has completed the second year of the cycle. The 2018 Legislative Session adjourned sine die May 9th, 2018, and will reconvene in January 2019. Only the Senate is able to prefile legislation, and the dates for prefiling legislation have not been determined.
The Connecticut Amputee Network is heading up the efforts in the state and is led by Herb Kolodny and Brenda Novak. They have been the local advocates and with the support of the Amputee Coalition have been able to progress the legislation to its current status.
