The panel charged by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to recommend possible changes to state laws and policies in the wake of the deadly elementary school shooting in Newtown is meeting for the first time.

The Sandy Hook Advisory Commission will convene Thursday at the Legislative Office Building. Hamden Mayor Scott Jackson is heading the 16-member group, which includes mental health and public safety experts. Commission members have until March 15 to submit their initial report to Malloy.

Meanwhile, the school safety subcommittee of the General Assembly's Bipartisan Task Force on Gun Violence Prevention and School Safety is holding a public hearing on Friday at the Legislative Office Building.

A hearing on gun safety is planned for Jan. 28. Another hearing on mental health issues is scheduled Jan. 29.
