On January 26, 2004, the House of Representatives of the Connecticut General Assembly met in special session to adopt a resolution to appoint a 10-member select committee to look into the matter of the impeachment of Governor John G. Rowland ("Resolution Appointing a Select Committee of Inquiry to Recommend Whether Sufficient Grounds Exist for the House of Representatives to Impeach Governor John G. Rowland Pursuant to Article Ninth of the State Constitution") The resolution directed the Speaker of the House to appoint a committee of ten members who would "conduct a comprehensive investigation relating to misconduct by Governor John G. Rowland, and submit its findings and recommendations to the House of Representatives, including whether sufficient grounds exist for the House to exercise its power to impeach Governor John G. Rowland pursuant to Article Ninth of the state constitution". The Committee conducted hearings, requested and subpoenaed documents, interviewed witnesses and filed a final report in June of 2004. On June 21, 2004, Governor Rowland announced that he would resign from office as of July 1. On June 28, with the impeachment question now moot, the Committee adjourned sine die. PA 04-37 directed that "any document, recorded data, information or other tangible materials of any kind prepared, received, owned, used or retained in the course of said inquiry, investigation, impeachment, trial or other proceeding, except those items that have been exempted from disclosure pursuant to state or federal law, shall be delivered to the State Library for preservation and archiving ..."
