DARIEN – The 2019 legislative session is proving to be one of most impactful times on the state’s business community in recent years, especially considering the new Democrat-enacted taxes that went into effect October 1st. Members of the state’s business community and small to mid-sized businesses, in particular, are therefore critical players in the effort to turn around Connecticut’s economy.
