As Session Begins, What Can Businesses Expect?
Connecticut lawmakers return to the State Capitol today and the business community is looking for the legislature to build on the bipartisan efforts of last fall’s special jobs session.
“We know the problems in Connecticut, it’s just having the political will to deal with them,” CBIA’s Joe Brennan told Fox CT’s Morning News..
“There’s a lot of issues out there… for the first time in a long while we’re really starting to tackle some of those issues.”
Brennan told Fox anchor Logan Byrnes that while the state’s unemployment rate was dropping, it was declining very slowly, indicating “we still have a lot of work to do to get people back to work.”
He also noted that the business community supports Governor Dannel Malloy’s education reform initiatives, expected to dominate this legislative session.
“Connecticut has fallen behind a lot of other states that have been more aggressive on reforms,” he said.
“A lot of the reforms that we think are important really don’t have a big price tag attached to them.”
