The final draft of the Long Island Sound Blue Plan being submitted to the Connecticut General Assembly's (CGA) Environment Committee before the start of the legislative session on February 5, 2020, includes all revisions and modifications resulting from public comments received during the 90-day public review period between March 20, 2019, and June 21, 2019:
Long Island Sound Blue Plan (Version 1.2 September 2019)
Long Island Sound Resource and Use Inventory (Version 1.4 September 2019)
Commissioner Dykes' Blue Plan Transmittal Letter to CGA Environment Committee
Within 45 days of the start of the legislative session and receipt of the Blue Plan, the Environment Committee must conduct a public hearing on the Plan.
Within 45 days of that public hearing, the Environment Committee must then submit the Blue Plan and its recommendation for approval or disapproval of the Plan to the full General Assembly.
The Long Island Sound Blue Plan will become effective when it is approved by a majority vote of each chamber of the General Assembly.
