HARTFORD – The Connecticut Business and Industry Association (CBIA) has released their ‘2021 State House Voting Records’ annual report and State Representative William A. Petit Jr. (R-22) recently received a more than favorable score for his support of business-friendly legislation.
“I appreciate the recognition from CBIA for my work in the legislature,” Rep. Petit said. “As policymakers and especially given the current climate, one of our main goals should be to help businesses create more opportunities to grow and stay here in Connecticut, and I think we do that by reducing burdensome regulations and unnecessary mandates that would hinder their development and potential growth.”
The Connecticut Business and Industry Association (CBIA) annually rates lawmakers based on their votes in committee or the House floor on a series of ‘key bills’ determined by the association on Connecticut’s economic competitiveness and business climate. Votes that support the business community’s position would reflect positively, while votes against would result in a lowered score.
This session, the bills included the truck tax, extending the manufacturing apprenticeship tax credit, issues with workers’ compensation, and incentivizing the adoption of cybersecurity standards to name a few.
CBIA is Connecticut’s leading business organization – with a membership comprised of hundreds of small, medium and large-sized businesses around the state.
