Public invited to comment on environmental legislation

The state Council on Environmental Quality is inviting everyone with an interest in environmental affairs to comment on potential environmental legislation at a forum at 9:30 a.m. Nov. 28 in Hearing Room 1C of the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.

The forum will be in the style of a public hearing. The council has published its draft list of legislative recommendations on its website, www.ct.gov/ceq.

“Many of the draft recommendations have a 'Back to Basics' focus: adequate funding for the Clean Water Fund, farmland and opens space preservation, and basic conservation functions,” Barbara Wagner, council chairwoman, said in a news release. “Others are the products of problems reported by citizens that have led to proposed solutions. We also are hopeful that people and organizations might have their own ideas to contribute.”

For information and directions, visit the council’s website or call (860) 424-4000.
