What's being said

  • Peter Sachs, Esq.

    The Speaker and President Pro Tempore cannot truthfully assert that they (even remotely) complied with the requirements of CGS Sec. 2-26 when they completed the "Emergency Certification" page for SB 1160.

    It is blatantly barren of any of the statute's required "facts." Any attempt on their part to claim they did comply would be dishonest and completely laughable. (Which is likely what they will continue to do.)

    They broke the law, plain and simple. And the consequences for violating CGS Sec. 2-26, (according to the statute's language), is that both the bill and law are null and void.
