Rep. Allie-Brennan Sworn In

January 9, 2019

As part of my first official acts, I introduced legislation to eliminate Connecticut’s $250 business entity tax and to prohibit the sale of puppies and kittens raised under inhumane conditions.

I campaigned on the promise of helping make Connecticut a friendlier place for business. The business entity tax is a prime example of how red tape is hurting our small businesses. I look forward to working with my colleagues and Governor Lamont to cut the bureaucracy and help make it easier to do business in Connecticut.

I also introduced a bill with State Representative Jason Doucette of Manchester that targets the controversial breeding facilities known as puppy mills or kitten factories, which often operate with little or no oversight.

If you purchased a dog from a puppy store, chances are you got one born in a puppy mill. This long overdue bill will finally cut off the supply of inhumanely bred puppies and kittens into Connecticut, and prevent people from unknowingly supporting this cruel industry.

These are essentially overcrowded breeding farms with unsanitary conditions, inadequate food, water, and veterinary care. Allie-Brennan’s legislation would prohibit the sale of pets raised under these conditions.

Raised in Bethel, Allie-Brennan serves as Vice Chairman of the House Energy and Technology Committee, Assistant Majority Leader, and as a member of both the Public Safety and Security Committee and General Law Committee.
