In advance of Hurricane Sandy’s likely impact on Connecticut, Governor Dannel P. Malloy today, Saturday, October 27, signed a Declaration of Emergency, otherwise known as a state of emergency. The Declaration of Emergency provides Governor Malloy with a number of emergency powers, including:
- The ability to modify or suspend any state statute, regulation, or requirement (for example: altering work hours, waiving licensing requirements, etc.)
- The ability to order civil preparedness forces into action
- The ability to designate vehicle and person routes and movements.
“The forecast path of Hurricane Sandy has convinced me that the signing of this declaration is necessary, and will help us react more quickly and effectively in the event of a serious weather event,” said Governor Malloy. “This storm needs to be taken seriously and just as the state is taking preparatory actions, I encourage the public and all of the state’s utility companies to do the same.
