Connecticut legislators have enacted a new law concerning secondhand dealers. The new law is titled HB 5795 and requires secondhand dealers (businesses which sell personal property from an individual who is not a wholesaler) to obtain a $10,000 surety bond. The bond is needed in order to become licensed with the State.
