Rep. Petit Receives 100% Score for Supporting Pro-Business Initiatives

Posted on July 7, 2022


HARTFORD The Connecticut Business and Industry Association (CBIA) has released their ‘2022 State House Voting Records’ annual report and State Representative William A. Petit Jr. (R-22) recently received a 100% score for his support of business-friendly legislation.

“It is always an honor to be recognized for the work you’ve done and continue to do,” Rep. Petit said. “As someone who has the ability to construct and adjust state laws, I have always taken into consideration the impact they will have on their intended audience. Given the sometimes-difficult nature of doing business in Connecticut, I will continue to advocate for ways to reduce unnecessary mandates and burdensome regulations and oppose any measures that place obstacles in the way of their 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 in opposition would result in a lowered score.

Rep. Petit was one of only forty-one state representatives who received a perfect score from the association.

CBIA is Connecticut’s leading business organization – with a membership comprised of hundreds of small, medium and large-sized businesses around the state.
