Boosting Our Economic Competitiveness

June 30, 2015

If Connecticut is to make true economic progress and attract businesses to our state, then we must first have a detailed understanding of our business and tax climate and our overall competitiveness.

I am happy to announce new legislation creating a Commission on Economic Competitiveness designed to analyze Connecticut’s business tax policy climate and develop policies that promote economic growth in the state.

I look forward to working with the commission as Chair of the Commerce Committee and reviewing their findings later this year.

Commission on Economic Competitiveness

  • Will consist of:
    • legislators
    • members of state economic agencies
    • members of the business community
  • Will sumbit findings and recommendations no later than January 1, 2016 to the General Assembly
  • Will then continue to submit similar reports annually.
