The legislature’s hearings on Tropical Storm Irene concluded Monday, but Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s task force investigating the response to the storm will start its work Wednesday.
The State Team Organized for the Review of Management, or S.T.O.R.M. because the administration likes clever acronyms, will hold its first meeting 11 a.m. Wednesday in room 310 of the state Capitol.
“It is important that a broad, objective evaluation be done to review how Irene was handled in the state, identifying areas that can be improved upon and – most importantly – make recommendations for future disaster preparedness and response. This will be a comprehensive evaluation of state agencies, utility companies, municipalities, non-profits and the private sector,” Malloy said in a press release.
The panel will receive its charge from Malloy and immediately begin discussion of its objectives and goals.
