HARTFORDState Representative Dave Yaccarino joined educators and manufacturers at the 5th Annual Materials Manufacturing Summer Teachers’ Institute held at Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) on Tuesday, July, 25.

Rep. Yaccarino met with the SCSU president and various administrators at the high school and university level to speak on behalf of the House Republican party regarding the importance of Connecticut’s manufacturing, science and technology sectors.

“I was honored to have the opportunity to speak with manufacturers and educators from New Haven County,” said Rep. Yaccarino, the ranking member of the legislature’s Commerce Committee. “Connecticut needs to focus on growing high-paying, sustainable jobs within the manufacturing and science sectors. It is important that we work to develop a pro-business economic climate so that manufacturing in this state can thrive as it once did in years prior. I am pleased to see that we are working to educate the next generation of workers.

According to Connecticut Business & Industry Association (CBIA), Connecticut is home to 4,011 manufacturing firm, which employs 159,000 workers.

Every year, the Office of Legislative Research (OLR), the Office of Fiscal Analysis (OFA), and the Legislative Commissioners’ Office (LCO) compile a report of the major issues passed during the 2017 Legislative Session.

However, this year, the report does not include an OFA budget summary because the General Assembly did not adopt a budget by the end of the regular session. A supplemental report will be issued when that information becomes available.

OLR provides brief descriptions on a number of issues in this report including legislation on opioid drugs, education, transportation and the state’s business climate, among others.

I encourage you to take a look at the full report by clicking here.
