Posted on August 6, 2019 by admin


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.”

This session the majority party passed the following anti-business bills:

Minimum Wage Increase to $15

Pay Roll Tax to fund Paid Family Leave

The state budget that included an increase in filling fees and a plastic bag tax
