Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy has formed an advisory commission that will review and recommend changes to state laws and policies in the wake of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

Malloy announced Thursday he has appointed Hamden Mayor Scott Jackson to chair the panel. An initial report is due to Malloy by March 15, in time for the General Assembly to take action during the next session.

The group plans to examine gun laws, school safety measures, gun violence prevention and mental health services.

Additional members of the commission will be announced later. Malloy said they will include experts in education, mental health, law enforcement and emergency response.
