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.

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