State Senator Toni Boucher (R-26) testified before the General Assembly’s Labor Committee this week speaking out against several bills related to prevailing wage and extra unemployment benefit assessments on small businesses.
“These two issues have an enormous impact on our municipalities and businesses,” Ms. Boucher said in a press release. “Let’s face the facts. Connecticut is in real trouble. We are one of six states losing more residents than are moving in, school enrollment is down across the board, higher education enrollment is down, we are last in job creation. These anti-business bills give the state a bad reputation and it is keeping businesses out and job growth down.”
