Committee Votes For Business-Friendly Bill

March 15, 2018

I co-sponsored this legislation because it can be a boon to businesses in downtown Danbury. P.J. Prunty, executive director of CityCenter Danbury, talked to the Committee about the success of these machines. In his testimony, P.J. noted that cities and towns where self-serve is used report a positive impact on the local economy. For example, if a vacant commercial property is transformed into a self-serve tap room, there is usually a ripple effect with other businesses and developments taking shape nearby. The General Law vote sends the bill to the House where the next step is getting it called to the floor for consideration.
