Each municipality is penalized when they fail to comply with the provisions of CGS Section 22a-27j (a). This section requires each municipality to pay to the Department of Environmental Protection for application fees required by Chapters 124, 126, 440 and 444 (i.e., land use permits). When a municipality has failed to act in accordance with the above requirements, the Office of Policy and Management must reduce the payment by $1,000 for each quarter (to a maximum of $4,000) that the municipality has not been in compliance.
CGS Section 3-55j generally prohibits municipalities from receiving Mashantucket Pequot/Mohegan Fund grants if a public school or associated athletic team under its school board's jurisdiction uses Native American names, symbols, or images without tribal consent.
