HARTFORD – Today, House and Senate Republicans called upon Governor Ned Lamont to bring the legislature into special session to fix a piece of legislation passed in the Democrat state budget that created new taxes on hundreds of grocery store foods, and also substantially increased taxes on prepared meals.

Rep. Perillo added, “We don’t need a meeting with DRS to prevent this tax increase, we can go back into a special session and do what is right by changing this law. It is clear that the people of Connecticut don’t want this tax to move forward.”

The House of Representatives need 76 members to sign a petition to force a special session and the State Senate would need 19 petition signatures.

HARTFORD – The Connecticut Business and Industry Association released their legislative scorecard last week that gives every state lawmaker a grade for their voting record regarding laws that could impact small and large businesses. State Representative Jason Perillo received a perfect score from CBIA.

Rep. Perillo voted against anti-business policies that will make it more difficult for business owners to grow and thrive in Connecticut.

“This legislative session business owners saw more and more harmful policies being passed by the majority party that will cost them more money to operate their business in Connecticut,” said Rep. Perillo. “The majority party continues to target business owners to cover the state’s reckless spending habits. If we don’t support our business owners, small and large, we are never going to see Connecticut recover.”
