Small Businesses: A Legislative Priority

February 11, 2019

According to a recent news article, Connecticut has added more than 23,000 jobs this year. Over the past several years we have put a laser-focus on policies to promote small business growth. I believe if we prioritize empowering business owners, small businesses will succeed.
This session, we are targeting health care costs for small business. The Labor Committee is working on a bill to offer a public option for health care to small businesses. Employers would be able to offer a reasonably priced plan with great benefits, allowing employees to get on the same plan as state employees.

We are working hard to make it easier to do business in Connecticut.
