ENFIELD – During remarks at the June 11th meeting of the North Central Connecticut Chamber of Commerce, State Representative Christopher Davis (R-57) addressed recent actions of the legislature.

“Many have commented that this past session has been the most anti-business in quite some time. From a $50 million tax hike on small businesses, expanding and increasing sales tax rates on certain items and increasing the minimum wage to $15 the majority in the legislature ignored the concerns expressed by employers at every turn,” said Rep. Davis.

HARTFORD – Finance Committee Ranking Member, State Representative Christopher Davis (R-57), after hours of debate opposed the Democrat budget that increases state spending on new and expanded programs despite massive projected deficits, raises hundreds of millions in sales taxes, raids the transportation fund to pay for new General Fund expenses, and hikes income taxes on thousands of small business owners.

Rep. Davis commented, “I approached this budget as a concerned taxpayer, a small businessman and as a father. Citizens are right to be concerned about the direction of our state. This budget squeezes the middle class from every direction. Families will have to pay more for every day goods and services from the grocery store to online services such as Netflix.

HARTFORD – State Representative Christopher Davis (R-57) offered an amendment on HJR 170 ‘Resolution Concerning the Bond Covenant’ that would have clarified the intentions of the legislature and condemned the 20 year $500 million bailout agreed to by the Malloy administration, State Treasurer and the City of Hartford.

“As part of the compromise budget agreement in 2017, the legislature offered financial assistance to the City of Hartford to help it avoid bankruptcy with a two-year $40 million bailout. Without legislative approval and against the legislature’s clear intent, the Office of Policy & Management and the State Treasurer instead agreed to a massive half a billion dollar deal for two decades,” said Rep. Davis. “This amendment makes clear our intent.”
