EAST GRANBY – State Representative Tami Zawistowski (R-61) recently presented a citation from the Connecticut General Assembly in recognition of the grand opening of American Cladding Technologies.  In 2017, American Cladding Technologies became a subsidiary of Joining Industries and moved to a new 20,000-square foot facility at 15 International Drive in East Granby, CT. The larger facility enables the company to expand its capacity and staffing, and to continue delivering technological advances in the industry.

House Republican Budget Proposal


I, along with my House Republican colleagues, recently released a budget proposal to tackle Connecticut’s looming $5.1 billion deficit over the next biennium. The budget includes no tax increases, no tolls and does not reduce state aid to municipalities.

To learn more about the proposal, please review the links below:

Municipal Aid

Now, we will join the Democrats and Governor Malloy at the negotiating table to come up with a final budget plan that can pass both the House and Senate.

If you have any questions regarding the budget proposal, or any other aspect of state government, please feel free to reach out to me at or call (860) 240-8700.
