Substitute House Bill No. 5432, also known as Special Act No. 24-2, is a legislative act that establishes a working group tasked with developing an economic development and tourism plan for the greater Mystic area, which includes the towns of Groton, New London, and Stonington. The plan is to cover a range of initiatives such as proposals for tourist destination development, marketing campaigns, a multimodal transportation center, traffic congestion solutions, green transportation, dredging of local rivers, public safety, workforce development, tax revenue utilization, flood impact analysis, identification of funding opportunities, and cost analysis for proposed projects.

The working group will consist of various representatives including those from the General Assembly, local authorities, regional organizations, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe, the Mohegan Tribe, tourist attractions, and state agencies. The bill outlines the composition of the working group, the appointment process, and the requirement for the group to consult with experts as needed.

The working group is required to submit a report on its findings and recommendations by January 1, 2025, to the relevant General Assembly committees, after which it will terminate. The act was approved on May 30, 2024.
