McGorty Awarded 100 Percent Pro-Business Voting Score by Connecticut Business and Industry Association (CBIA)

Posted on September 20, 2021


HARTFORD, Conn. —State Representative Ben McGorty (R-122nd) was recently recognized for his exceptional voting record in support of both Connecticut businesses and workers.

The Connecticut Business and Industry Association (CBIA), which represents thousands of large and small employers in the Constitution State, recently gave McGorty a 100% score on its annual State House Voting Record Scorecard.

Lawmakers were judged based on their support for policies that create jobs and bring businesses to Connecticut, as well as their opposition to job-killing taxes and harmful mandates.

“Between a new tax on the truckers that stock our shelves and the governor’s ever-elusive TCI ‘gas tax’ proposal, Connecticut businesses need lawmakers that will stand beside them and fight back against unaffordable mandates and taxes coming at them from Hartford,” McGorty said. “I’m proud to have worked on behalf of all of our proud business owners and workers in the 122nd District who know that this state still has more work left to be done to reduce taxes and get folks back to work. Now is the time to kick-start our state’s economic recovery, and we can do that by listening to what our state’s employers need to get this economy back on track.”

CBIA’s policy initiatives feature in a number of the bills, with those recommendations designed to help businesses manage the high costs of navigating COVID-19 restrictions, create and retain jobs, and lead Connecticut’s economic recovery.
