Well I read the document over and CG is very accurate with his concerns. However these "standards" are not necessarily rule. In paragraph 2 it states

Connecticut Public Safety Interoperable Communications Executive Committee as criteria for approval of the use of federal Department of Homeland Security funds administered by the State for the purpose of
purchasing mobile radios by or for EMS units in the State of Connecticut."

This would indicate in order for this group to purchase radios with grant money for departments these conditions need to be met. This has no governance over radios agencies purchase on their own. The programming scheme is a good suggestion with respect to standardizing cmed radio programming. However there are alot of issues which are either vague or exempt from this "standard"
