Universal Citation: CT Gen Stat § 4-169 (2018)

No adoption, amendment or repeal of any regulation, except a regulation issued pursuant to subsection (g) of section 4-168, shall be effective until the proposed regulation and any revision of a proposed regulation to be resubmitted to the standing legislative regulation review committee (1) has been submitted electronically to the Attorney General and the version submitted to the Attorney General posted on the eRegulations System by the agency proposing such regulation, and (2) approved by the Attorney General or by some other person designated by the Attorney General for such purpose. The review of such regulations by the Attorney General shall be limited to a determination of the legal sufficiency of the proposed regulation. If the Attorney General or the Attorney General's designated representative fails to give notice to the agency of any legal insufficiency within thirty days of the receipt of the proposed regulation, the Attorney General shall be deemed to have approved the proposed regulation for purposes of this section. The approval of the Attorney General shall be provided to the agency electronically, included in the regulation-making record and submitted electronically by the agency to the standing legislative regulation review committee. As used in this section “legal sufficiency” means (A) the absence of conflict with any general statute or regulation, federal law or regulation or the Constitution of this state or of the United States, and (B) compliance with the notice and hearing requirements of section 4-168.
