After complaining about House Bill 5481, I am honor-bound to report that the Governor’s office testified against it today. Thank you, Governor’s office.

Testimony of Luke Bronin, General Counsel to the Governor 

On Behalf of Governor Dannel P. Malloy
To the Government Administration and Elections Committee
On House Bill 5481, An Act Establishing the Central Office of Administrative Hearings
March 10, 2014

Senator Musto, Representative Jutila, Senator McLachlan, Representative Hwang and members of the
Government Administration and Elections Committee:

Thank you for the opportunity to provide testimony on House Bill 5481, An Act Establishing the Central
Office of Administrative Hearings, which would transfer authority for hearing contested cases from
certain agencies to the Central Office of Administrative Hearings. The Administration opposes this bill.

While we respect the proponents’ aims, the Administration believes that this bill goes too far in
separating agencies’ policy-making function from their adjudicatory, investigatory and prosecutorial
functions. Agencies possess substantial subject matter expertise, and courts give administrative agency
decisions great deference precisely because decisions by agency personnel are informed by such subject
matter expertise.

We also anticipate significant costs associated with the establishment of such an office

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
