I may not have my facts straight, but I think I remember a thread somewhere a couple years ago about CT becoming a new PCS state. I think it didn't use to be. But I could be wrong. I moved here this past summer, so didn't really pay much attention to CT back in 2012.
That's a good point Ken, I guess I've really focused on the only two PCS states that I care about, VA and CT, since those are the ones where I've taken exams. So, I retract my earlier statement and will just say, yes PCS states are typically later than the direct from NCEES to candidate states.
