Transition Policy Working Group

In the days following their election on November 6, 2018, Governor-elect Ned Lamont and Lt. Governor-elect Susan Bysiewicz held a policy summit attended by more than 450 people, where they announced the creation of 15 committees that were each assigned a topic encompassing a wide-variety of critical state issues. Dozens of Connecticut residents were named to serve on the committees, with their memberships specifically designed to incorporate as many viewpoints as possible. The committees were tasked with developing policy recommendations on their respective topics that the incoming Lamont-Bysiewicz administration could consider immediately upon taking the oath of office on January 9, 2019.

“This is a fresh start that none of us are going to squander. It starts right here with our policy teams. I don’t want this to be one of those things where you write a really great report and it ends up on some bookshelf somewhere. What a waste that would be. What a waste of all the talent we have in this room.” — Governor-elect Lamont at the policy summit.
