The ones that became law:
- HB 7313 An Act Concerning Domestic Violence.
- SB 1458 An Act Concerning Jessica’s Law.
- SB 0170 An Act Concerning Pardons.
The ones that died, only to fight another day:
- HB 5503 An Act Concerning Residency Restrictions for Registered Sexual Offenders
- HB 6285 An Act Concerning The Age of a Child with Respect to Juvenile Court Jurisdiction
- HB 7085 An Act Concerning the SOL for Prosecution of Certain Sexual Assault Offenses Using DNA Evidence.
- HB 7234 An Act Concerning Victim Services.
- HB 7335 An Act Concerning Persistent Offenders.
- HB 7365 An Act Concerning the Procedure in a Capital Felony Trial.
- HB 7391 An Act Concerning Preventive Detention.
- HB 7406 An Act Concerning Youthful Offenders…
- HB 7408 An Act Concerning the Risk Assessment Board…
- SB 0708 An Act Creating a Violent Offender Registry.
- SB 0838 An Act Requiring the DNA Testing of Certain Arrested Persons.
- SB 1269 An Act Concerning the Quality of Legal Representation of Children and Youth in Juvenile Matters.

Note that some of the proposals in these bills may have been merged with others (although I’m not aware of any). The Judicial Branch’s Law Library is keeping a running tally of all the bills that have become law. I’ll keep checking and updating this list as necessary. (HT: CT Practice Blog)
