CBIA BizCast host Ali Warshavsky speaks with Gov. Ned Lamont about a number of issues, including his goal of doubling the amount of manufacturers in Connecticut over the next 10 years. 

Lamont has been touring the state during manufacturing month, visiting both small and large companies. One of the major issues they are facing is finding skilled workers. 

Lamont is exploring offering tax credits to Connecticut businesses who hire a graduate from a college in the state and over time, forgive the employee’s student loans. 

“It gives young people an incentive to stay in Connecticut, it gives Connecticut employers an incentive to hire here Connecticut and to your question it's a tax cut for small business,” he said.
