"Connecticut is open for business" quickly has become Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's theme, says the New London Day in an Op-Ed piece published this week.

CBIA president and CEO John Rathgeber (pictured above with a reporter following the Governor's February 16 budget speech) was quoted in the same piece.

"We...agree with Mr. Rathgeber's observation that Gov. Malloy must hang tough with his Democratic legislature and insist that it follow through on his 'shared sacrifice' promise to reduce state labor spending and rein in costs," The Day's editorial writer noted.
