(HARTFORD) — The state’s leading business advocacy group, Connecticut Business & Industry Association (CBIA), has officially released its data illustrating how members of the CT State House of Representatives voted in 2022. According to the association, Representative Jason Perillo (R-113) earned a 100% voting score based on his unwavering support of several new laws aimed at creating jobs.
“I am committed to supporting business owners and their employees as Connecticut becomes more unaffordable,” said Rep. Perillo in response to the report. “We need to prioritize business growth and development in any way we can to help achieve a more stable and reliable economic environment.”
Each year the CBIA rates Connecticut lawmakers’ voting records concerning an array of ‘key bills’ determined by the association on Connecticut’s business environment and economic stability. Tallied votes that support the business community’s position would reflect positively, while votes in opposition rendered a lower overall score.
Rep. Perillo added, “There is this belief out there that you can either support employers or employees, but not both. That’s absolutely false. When companies grow, they hire more employees. A rising tide floats all boats.”
The list of bills included issues ranging from developing a plan for women returning to Post-COVID Workplace, addressing Manufacturing Jobs, establishing Licensing Reforms, and creating a Commercial Driver’s License Training program. Rep. Perillo’s votes on these issues are reflected in his 100% score.
CBIA is Connecticut’s leading business organization — with a membership comprised of hundreds of small, medium and large-sized businesses around the state.
