Legislative Action Stays Busy

Even though the General Assembly was out of session this summer, a lot of legislative activity continued—and much of it focused on boosting Connecticut’s competitiveness.

In this issue we provide updates on many of these groups whose work could have an impact on Connecticut’s job creators and the state’s economy.

Connecticut has enormous economic potential, but also challenges that are impeding our ability to maximize that potential.

We will continue to provide updates on these groups as many work toward making legislative proposals for the 2016 session.
