It’s October, and that means a whole new set of laws are being enacted in Connecticut. If you ever needed proof of how hard your elected officials are working, look no further than the highly anticipated laws governing flower seeds, the creation of kitchen incubators, new crane operations, the legislation of maple-sugaring activities, and “an act concerning captive insurance companies.”
I’m not usually one to rail against government interference. Truth be told, it’s all I can do to keep an eye on my lunch at work. However, new laws are rolled out on the first day of January, July and October, and this month Connecticut has rolled out dozens of new head-scratchers. For instance, under a new act, the DMV must require applicants for driver’s licenses or identity cards to indicate whether they consent or decline to be organ donors. Prior law required only that an applicant be given the opportunity to become an organ donor.
