A printer in a Connecticut city could be a lifesaver if it could be licensed by the state.
The Hartford Courant reports that the city’s mayor, Dan Connolly, is working on a resolution to ensure that a printer is registered in the city and that anyone wanting to use it must register it with the city, which can then require it to have a license.
“This is something that we need to do because it could save the lives of our citizens,” Connolly said.
“And we can’t be making this happen by accident.
I don’t want the state to get in the way of our ability to protect people.”
Connolly said that he has not yet met with anyone from the state about the proposal.
“I have spoken to the governor about it, and I think it’s a great idea,” he said.
He added that the issue of printer licensing was one he discussed with Gov.
The state has long been a pioneer in the printing industry.
In 2004, the state became the first in the country to require the registration of printers in the state, along with the required documentation to make them available for printing.
Connolly, who was elected mayor in 2014, said that while it is a step in the right direction, the city will have to do more.
“We’ve got to be proactive,” he told the Courant.
“There’s so much information out there that’s out there.
You have to make sure that we have this information and that it’s all in place.”
