Legislation has been proposed in Connecticut to form a task force to study the proliferation of satellite dishes on single and multifamily homes. A similar bill previously passed in the state House, but was never called for a vote in the Senate. The measure would require homeowners to remove an existing satellite dish each time a new one is put up. A Danbury City Council committee was formed by Mayor Mark Boughton in August of 2016 to look into cracking down on satellite dish placement. Boughton says it could be an indication of over-occupancy of residential properties, with no recognition of structural, safety and aesthetic integrity.
