Maybe after October… State Militia Governor’s Authority to Raise a Connecticut State Guard A new law authorizes the governor, at any time, to raise, organize, maintain, and govern the Connecticut State Guard. The prior law required the governor to take such action only when the Connecticut National Guard was called into the federal service or believed that such a call was imminent (PA 21-2, JSS, § 282, effective October 1, 2021). Organizational Structure of the State’s Militia Units A new law eliminates the requirement that each organization of the state’s armed forces adopt bylaws. It instead requires the governor, as commander-in-chief of the state’s militia, to configure and administer the state’s militia units similar to National Guard or federal military units of similar composition, size, and purpose. It also allows the adjutant general to issue bylaws, regulations, orders, and circulars to administer the militia units. The act also eliminates provisions related to the bylaws, including those on the (1) collection of fines and dues, (2) leadership of associations created in the bylaws, and (3) election and bond requirements of the organization’s treasurer (PA 21-158, effective October 1, 2021).
