CT-N Live Coverage
- when the state legislature (i.e., CT General Assembly) is in session, many committee hearings and meetings, as well as debates on the floor of the House and Senate, are covered live by CT-N. While many legislators and committees work throughout the year on proposals, the state legislature is officially "in session" from January to June in odd-numbered years, and from February to May in even-numbered years. State laws can be amended or adopted only when the legislature is officially in these regular sessions. Special sessions are sometimes called by the Governor at other times of the year to amend or adopt laws or state budgets not dealt with during a regular session.
